Talking To Turtles: “And What’s On Your Mind” (Review & Stream)





After a nine-year break, Talking To Turtles have achieved something beautiful here: an album with a single feeling. You get it right at the beginning and then, song after song, you’re glad that it doesn’t stop. There is a friendly serenity and gentle introspection in this softly and unpretentiously played music that sways and slowly exhales.
