My favorite thing about Frantically, the cassette that Talkative released in 2012, is how little its songs resemble each other. There's zooming art rock, tropically tinged chanting, subterranean acoustic post-apocalyptic lullabies, and at least one absolute masterpiece, the whippit-echo of "Saturday," which sounds like Animal Collective trying their hand at Liars' Drum's Not Dead, with a bit of Bruce Springsteen's Nebraska thrown in for good measure. Frantically is available for streaming and download on Bandcamp, although cassette editions are sold out; Talkative says a CD version will be available in February. NED LANNAMANN
