ALBUM REVIEW: "Tossing & Turning" 

Talking Under Water

"Tossing & Turning"

Self-released

talkingunderwater.bandcamp.com

Somehow the word "epic" feels inadequate in describing Rochester band Talking Under Water's EP, "Tossing & Turning." The album gets off to a gentle start: all peaceful and harmonious like The Shangri-Las on methadone. It's at this point you say to yourself, "Gosh, this sure is all peaceful and harmonious." And then the sound comes down — this is where I was going to insert "epic." Give this record a spin and hear all the sonic thunder that envelopes the bands poignant simplicity in reverb rivaled only by the snare drum in the elevator shaft stunt on the last verse of "Bridge Over Troubled Water." There's plenty of thick 'n' juicy guitar, cello, piano, and drums all swimming in an apocalyptic ether that sounds ... epic.
