Scheduled for August 19th via Devil Duck Records is "Oh, The Good Life", the new album by Talking To Turtles which provides a journey balancing between sweet innocent and mostly acoustic IndiePop and folksy campfire elements. A seductive amalgamation served by the bands core members Claudia & Florian plus a whole bunch of guest musicians recruited by the Seattle-based producer Jonathan Warman throughout the recording process in the legendary Avast!-studio where bands like Death Cab For Cutie or Band Of Horses already recorded before. If you're following these pages regularly you might already have downloaded the song "Grizzly Hugging" given out as promotional piece for "Oh, The Good Life" and you will love all other songs as well, especially my very personal favorite "In The Future" - a quite repetitive but well anthemic sing-a-long piece of IndieFolk that is more than a perfect starter tune for this album, the melancholia driven "Short Stories Long" or the deep, intimate "Fingers Crossed". Guess this is one of the albums to be on heavy rotation in many many home stereo systems this fall - Indie girls are about to love it for sure.
