Talik is the long distant duo of Cory Zaradur and Andreas Adams (aka. MuskoakA), who write music together separated by hundreds of kilometers in Western Canada via online collaboration. Zaradur has recorded droney ambient pieces as one half of Language of Landscape, and MuskoakA, who has put out a couple of releases of IDM/electronica. Talik, not surprisingly then, falls somewhere in-between, with Zaradur’s gorgeous, languid guitar lines and melodies drifting like summer clouds over MuskoakA’s glitchy beats and gentle programming. Talik’s music isn’t really ambient, nor is it electronica, shoegazer, or post-rock (though one can use all of them in a pinch). Rather, it lands gracefully in some beautiful place in the midst of those genres.
A new full length album is in the works to be released on Inner Ocean later on in 2012.
