Tonight: Land of Talk, Suuns, & Little Scream at Bowery Ballroom

I've been wanting to see Montreal indie rockers Land of Talk for a few years now, but missed them a couple of times. And then came singer/guitarist Elizabeth Powell's encounter with throat polyps, which caused the band to cancel its 2009 tour.

But now Land of Talk is back and sounding as good as ever, and with a new album "Cloak and Cipher" that came out in late August. Land of Talk plays Bowery Ballroom Saturday night on a bill with Suuns and Little Scream.

Suuns, also from Montreal, used to be called Zeroes but changed their name because of legal reasons. They made a big splash at last month's CMJ festival, and the NY Daily News said their music is "repetitious, distorted and sometimes as lumbering as a zombie trying to walk. But it's also got momentum, thrills and mystery to burn." The New York Times called Suuns "drone scholars."

Tickets ($15) are still available at the link above at the door. Doors at 8 p.m.; show scheduled to start 9 p.m.
