Talking Book, the San Francisco-based experimental trio which 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), have shared a second track and video from their upcoming album, Talking Book II, debuting a video for ‘Blood Aurora/Thermal Drift’ via I Heart Noise! New Zealand director Shaun Garea created the clip, with several other videographers and directors generously providing their material to make this video possible. Check it out!
Gould commented about the new album:
“We had originally thought this would be an easy follow-up to our debut album from 2011,” said Gould. “But in fact, this was a journey that took years. It was a wild ride, but in my opinion was totally worth the effort, it enabled us to really dig deep, and get this the way we wanted it. I feel like we have created a soundtrack to a film that can only be seen through listening.”
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.
