Barcelona producer John Talabot is headed to the US this summer to play a couple of dates. There aren't any in Chicago, but Talabot will be visiting again in September and is set to perform at Smart Bar on the 28th of the month. Orchard Lounge will act as main support and advance tickets are on sale now.
Talabot released his debut LP, ƒIN, back in February via Permanent Vacation. ƒIN is collection of moody dance tracks that are similar in style to the output of fellow Barcelonians Delorean. Where Delorean might opt for a burst of sunny synth lines, Talabot turns to darker more somber tones. The two groups mesh nicely on the album track "Journeys," which features vocalist Ekhi Lopetegi. Stream that and a few other John Talabot tracks at the bottom of this post.
