Sure, a lot had changed in the interim: Their debut record had become a staple on modern-rock radio, earning the band a gold record in Canada and a Juno Award for Alternative Album of the Year, while worldwide deals with Island, Polydor and Universal had spread the good word overseas. When it came time to draft the action plan for album number two, July Talk turned to the only focus group that mattered: We wanted songs where we can grab people by throat and show them something unique—the kind of songs that feel incredible in a sweaty room. We became drawn to the idea of what it actually means to be a living breathing human. We became fascinated with that moment where two bodies can actually touch and experience each other honestly. There are so many substitutes for that now, there are so many ways you can get a lesser version of that feeling elsewhere. And throughout it all, Fay holds court in the fray with a switchblade-wielding swagger she only hinted at on the first album. Sometimes, you can get fairly automated when recording on computers.

Peter Dreimanis from July Talk:: Long distance road trip: Emmy Lou Harris for the road stories. Lloyd Dobler for the love stories. Matt Mays for the party. What is your favorite breakfast cereal? What is one thing that is hanging on your bedroom wall? Leah has way cooler things on her walls than I do on mine.

July Talk tells two sides of the same story
Peter pummels us with his voice that sounds gloriously like Tom Waits singing through a throatful of steel wool, while Leah sings with a saccharine sweetness, all the time a look of mischief in her eyes. They transform before us into archetypes: To what extent do you think this is true? He was really hard-working but he also partied exponentially harder than I did.
If we had plans to meet up I never knew which version of him would show up at the door. I probably made him equally as nervous but he dealt with it by awkwardly showing up to as many of my shows, parties and cafe shifts as humanly possible.

We feel so lucky but are also a little dumbfounded by how fast everything is happening. So far, our approach has been to not really believe anything is happening until it is actually happening. I think it is the safest way to deal with the attention. Having returned from a tour of Europe with another group, Dreimanis reportedly sat in a Toronto-area basement bar plotting his next musical move.
By chance or fate, depending on how you want to look at it, Fay was at that same bar. Peter heard me singing, came and sat down in front of me and hung out. We ended up talking until the wee hours of the morning and then as fate would have it, I ran into him at a different bar a few nights later. He gave me a link to some of his songs on his Myspace page.
Let’s Talk About July Talk
Share Tweet Submit Pin There is an unsettling juxtaposition between dueling vocalists Leah Fay and Peter Dreimanis of the Canadian blues-rock five-piece July Talk that keeps listeners engaged throughout their latest album Touch. On Touch, July Talk expands far past the garage blues of their debut album, incorporating a new pop sensibility to their grating brand of rock.
Reminiscent of recent releases by fellow blues rock bands such as The Kills, July Talk come into their own with Touch with intimidating confidence along with their authentic bluesy swagger. What keeps every song on Touch so engaging is how they all change moods at the drop of a hat. Thankfully, July Talk turns these inconstancies into volatile tunes that leaves us begging for more.
July 7, After a wonderful liturgy, we attended the High School meeting at St. Mary Coptic Orthodox Church in Ottawa, Canada. Happy (Ihab) Mikhail gave a talk on dating.
And yet, it can often seem a good friend is hard to find. I know that my life is better when I have real, true friends I can count on, and I suspect you feel the same. We know that humans are made for relationship. This may be trite but a friendship really is a two-way street. Friendship involves both our commitment and openness to others, and the commitment of the other in return. It caused me to consider for the first time just how important friendship is for a whole Christian life.
More recently I was able to spend some time talking to Deacon Anthony about the theological roots of friendship. As Deacon shared with me, human friendship is meant to image the Divine friendship within God: He has sent us two friends — Jesus and the Holy Spirit — to help us grow in friendship with Himself. First, Jesus reminds us to accept our call to friendship with God.

All the low-voice guys. Big Freedia from New Orleans. You were hesitant early on in your career to sing. What was the first song you sang on stage? I was on tour in Lutherstadt, Germany. I was playing with another band. I got up on stage after the show when they wanted another song and instead of the band coming back up, they told me to just go play one.
You sang on a Walking Dead promo. What is the best theme song in TV history? In that promo, you sang Bad Moon Rising in a very different way than most people are used to hearing it. You look up to artists like Bry Webb The Constantines , you look up to artists like Britt Daniel Spoon , those are the two artists that I think we were thinking the most about when we wrote that song.
