Talk Normal: the duo of Andrya Ambro and Sara Register
If Karen O and Thurston Moore had a lovechild, it would be the dynamic duo of Andrya Ambro and Sarah Register who make up the band, Talk Normal. I discovered them last week and was lucky enough to catch them live the day after I did at the Echo in Los Angeles. The two girls split the stage, each with a separate arsenal of musical artillery at their disposal. Andrya plays drums, standing up at times, while Sarah crunches away on a Silverline. The two go back and forth singing haunting vocal lines that are simultaneously in your face and like sirens calling from the distance of noisy seas.
