12/20/11: Local Music - Spell Talk

Salt Lake City, UT – Since Andrew Milne, Jared Phelps and Sammy Harper formed Spell Talk four years ago the band has quickly become one of the biggest fish in Salt Lake's admittedly small-pond music scene. They first drew crowds with a brand of droney, blues-inflected psych rock, but their latest release, Touch It, features the band's new sound: rock n' roll, raw, gritty and unadulterated. Spell Talk will play live in the RadioWest studio on Tuesday, and we'll review the best in local albums from the year that was.

  • Give a listen to Spell Talk.
  • Spell Talk's next gig in Salt Lake is on Friday, December 30, at 8 p.m. at Urban Lounge (21+, 241 South 500 East).

    Spell Talk performed their new song "Willy" live on RadioWest. Watch the video:
