Talkdemonic is a befitting name for a hip-hop and electronic influenced project. Like nothing the Pacific Northwest has seen before, Talkdemonic melds the primal, the classical and the modern to create songs that are as sweeping in scope as they are shattering in intensity. The band calls it folktronic hop and, for the last year, it has helped Talkdemonic create a fanbase in the Pacific Northwest that grows with each performance, the tales of the band's ability to capture the most human emotions with only drums, viola, a laptop and no vocals attracting curious onlookers that are soon turned into devout fans. The album is a wonder of Kevin O'Connor's meticulous mind, featuring a sweeping orchestra of instruments; humming synth lines, plaintive acoustic guitar, dead-steady programmed beats, a mournful concertina and a soaring viola all tethered together by O'Connor's drumming. Having opened shows for Explosions in the Sky, Hood, M83, and plenty of others, TALKDEMONIC was named Willamette Week's Best New Band of 2005.
