Talking Book (Faith No More/Gigante Sound) Premiere “Blood Aurora/Thermal Drift” Video via I Heart Noise

TALKING BOOK PREMIERE “BLOOD AURORA/THERMAL DRIFT” VIDEO VIA I HEART NOISE


TRIO FEATURING FAITH NO MORE’S BILL GOULD AND GIGANTE SOUND’S JARED BLUM AND DOMINIC CRAMP

Talking Book, the San Francisco-born experimental trio whose music evokes the “distorted sepia tone imagery of a bygone era” (Cyclic Defrost), share a second track from the outfit’s upcoming album, Talking Book II, debuting a video for “Blood Aurora/Thermal Drift” via I Heart Noise (https://ihrtn.net/video-premiere-talking-book-blood-aurora-thermal-drift/).

The group features Faith No More’s Bill Gould with Gigante Sound co-founders Jared Blum (Vulcanus 68, Vision Heat) and Dominic Cramp (Borful Tang, Lord Tang), crafting music that is antithetical to genre classifications. Though the approach to creating the record has been uniquely their own, there are obvious echoes of Eno’s earliest ambient projects and his Bowie collaborations, ‘60s Serbian and Czech soundtracks, English folk and coastal melodies, intertwining prog guitars met with dusty electro acoustic tape music and Lynch’s “Eraserhead” score.

Talking Book II is a total listening experience, meant to be digested as two complete pieces, preferably with headphones. The tracks are meant to flow, one into the other, without gaps. The vinyl release will be limited to 500 copies and contains an entire piece per side. Pre-orders for the 12” vinyl version can be found here: https://store.pias.com/release/177981-talking-book-talking-book-ii.
