Land of Talk

Former Guelphite Elizabeth Powell returned home with an airtight trio, impressing friends, family and new fans alike. The band’s poppy punk was anchored by Powell’s stage presence — an even mix of fragility and defiance. Genuinely pleased to be there, Land of Talk confidently blasted through "Speak to Me Bones,” "Summer Special” and other songs from their latest record, Applause Cheer Boo Hiss, pausing only to let Powell’s sharp sense of humour and self-effacing banter win over the appreciative crowd.
