ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A comfortable silence is the mark of a well-adjusted relationship. Developing such a relationship is the result of significant investments of both time and work. In a similar way, Maclean has invested considerable time and work into developing this relationship with the music it creates, now reaching the point where they understand the particular kind of music they write: the kind of music that calmly self-asserts that mediocrity is no longer a viable option.

It's been an interesting several years since the band's creation late in the summer of 2005. The considerable success of the band’s freshman release “Hang This On Your Wall” (2007), coupled with national recognition on the competitive stage and enthusiastic reviews in numerous, credible industry sources, have all left members Denver Harris (Vocals, Guitar), Drew McTaggart (Vocals, Guitar), Steve Sawatzky (Bass, Keys), Scott Neufeld (Bass, Guitar), and Mac Carlson (Drums, Glockenspiel) with a resounding sense of appreciation for the support they've received over the years and awe at the places their simple love for creating and sharing music has taken them.

The upcoming release (February 21, 2009) of the band’s second full-length album will prove to be the most defining moment to date in the ongoing biography of this group of young artists. At once marked by a distinctly matured sound and a much weightier depth of material, the latest Maclean project is testament to the nearly two years of elapsed time since their first release. This extended break was marked by a long period of sampling ideas and hammering song frameworks out of the simplest of concepts to form lush, heavily textured fragments of an album later to be titled "Talker" as a reflection on the way conversation interprets every experience. Nearly a year of hiatus from playing shows allowed band members to experience many things that would later inform the stories their artwork records. The past several months have been spent tracking, compiling, editing and mixing these songs in locations ranging from a Montreal cathedral to a home studio in Coquitlam, all to yield the music Maclean is now proud to release to the world. From its most momentous peak to the subtle tinker of its most intimate moments, Talker tells the stories of this band in vivid musical detail. And yes, there are a few comfortable silences.
