Talkie

Talkie’s Everything Matters an album of substance

This May San Francisco’s Talkie released their latest, Everything Matters and it’s a refreshing and impressive album of good ol’ rock and roll. They’ve got a Strokes thing going on with some softer surf rock, dream pop moments (check track “Proper Way”). The album sounds great, too. Mixed, produced at Headfone Audio; mastered by Jerry Ososkie, the drums had the right amount of punch, vocals are invitingly warm and harmonies are touched in just right. Speaking of which, unless their Bandcamp is lying, one of the musician’s parents may or may not include their vocal harmonies on some tracks. Must be a musical family because mom n pop sound great. I’m an extra big fan of track “Summer Bummer.” What’s not a bummer is that Talkie will be playing at Bottom of the Hill on July 27. Now go listen to “Eraser” and feel impressed with those vocals.  - Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor

   

A Deli Premiere: former AOTM Talkie releases "Costa Rica"

Since winning The Deli SF’s Artist of the Month poll last year, the fuzzy Bay Area indie rockers Talkie have been hard at work on their forthcoming album Fundamental Things, slotted to be released on April 27th. The Deli is excited to announce the premiere of the single “Costa Rica” (streaming below), a catchy and quirky track that we just can’t get enough of. The strength of this song is in its deceptive simplicity; meaning, the way the four-piece can make interesting guitar parts, tight percussion, and smooth lyricism all sound so easy and carefree. But, that's just Talkie in a nutshelll. Stay tuned for the release on April 27th, and make sure to mark June 9th on your calendar so you can see Talkie take Bottom of the Hill. - Lilly Milman 

   

​Premiere: Talkie​ - Songs From the Hablas (Acoustic) + Play Great America Music Hall - 4/8

​It is always a pleasure to premiere new music. Today we are happy to share an acoustic version of the San Francisco based band, Talkie´s EP, ​Songs From the Hablas. Enjoy this well produced, acoustic album and make sure you check them out live at Great American Music Hall on April 8th with Sunrunners, Meet Me in Orbit and St. Ranger!​​

"Shortly after releasing Hablas, we were invited to play at Super Bowl City. We showed up, and there wasn't much room, nor enough juice to power all the amps. We ended up playing the set acoustically and realized it sounded rather good. A few days later, we tracked our favorites in the studio. Bang."​​​ - Talkie
