One of my favorite albums of 2006, Land of Talk‘s 7-song EP Applause, Cheer, Boo, Hiss was recently reissued by The Rebel Group. The homemade version cost me $10 when I got it. Insound has the reissue for just $6.00. The reissue is also getting the band a little more coverage, Pitchfork review included:

Somehow Powell finds a way to balance early Cat Power fragility and PJ Harvey volatility; whether mumbling indecipherably or singing about “fuckin’ around,” girls who “still piss their pants,” or the dangers of drinking when already tired, she’s always in command.

Land of Talk played like 8 zillion shows at SXSW (more live MP3s here and here), and then they went on tour with Menomena (which brought them to Bowery Ballroom last week). I missed all of those recent shows, but here’s a cool picture someone else took at one of them (Hot Freaks party, Club DeVille, March 17):
