Speakers everywhere this summer will rejoice with the arrival of Eyes at Half Mast, the third record from Talkdemonic, due Sept. 16 via Arena Rock. The Portland, Oregon duo of Kevin O'Connor and Lisa Molinaro have been playing together since 2003; she plays the viola and he plays everything else, including, but not limited to: drums, synths, and acoustic instruments. The result is an intoxicating blend of symphonic strings, explosive percussion, and achingly beautiful music. Talkdemonic is admired for their cathartic and bewitching live sets, with O'Connor's rhythmic prowess and Molinaro's ethereal sound co-mingling. They have been playing these songs to swooning audiences for the past two years, and their sound comes together for Eyes at Half Mast.
