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. The trio plays for free tonight as part of an art opening for Susan Sage, and they also headline tomorrow night at Slabtown. NED LANNAMANN
