Lungfish Talking Songs For Walking on LP + Download
Baltimore, MD's post-hardcore group Lungfish performed and released albums on the Dischord Records label for more than 20 years. The group's consciousness alternately/simultaneously coalesced and dispersed creating a continuous quasi-musical pulse, which reached its climax at many intervals along the way. Lungfish is now, as it often has been, quasi, if not entirely, defunct. Produced by Ian MacKaye (Minor Threat, Fugazi, Embrace), 1992's Talking Songs For Walking is the band's second full-length and first for Dischord. The churning and aggressive 10-song set laid the foundation for the hypnotic sound the band would stay relatively true to for the breadth of their career albeit with more emphasis placed on dynamics on subsequent efforts.
