witnessing RITUAL TALK perform at TRANS-PECOS back on a frigid winter night in 2018 was one of the highlights since being involved with DEER GOD. to my ears they conjure up the best experimental aspects of bands like JANE'S ADDICTION, FRIENDLY FIRES and even THE POLICE, the drums locked into an ambient groove going while shifting thumping bass lines and arpeggiated guitars swirl abound.
i loved that show. if it was up to me, we would have done an OFF THE M episode of their entire set.

watch this recent performance by brooklyn indie band RITUAL TALK at queens venue TRANS-PECOS as part of our ongoing live series OFF THE M.
we definitely dug their expansive sound which infused afro-latin based rhythms with angular guitar work, slinky bass lines (very reminiscent of ERIC AVERY) and atmospheric keyboard flourishes. this performance is a definite highlight of the series so far.
please watch and share. let's get this series out there!
