WIM – “See You Hurry” MP3, Video, Twin Shadow Remix

Aussie indie rockers WIM wade in a variety of styles, crafting unfurling, operatic songs like first single "See You Hurry" as well as plucky odes like "Colossus."

Pitchfork Festival 2011: Saturday Recap

Pitchfork Fest Friday inspired thoughts about the intimate and situational appeal of much of today's crop of independent artists, and the challenges inherent to translating that allure in sunny festival climes. Fittingly, Saturday's most successful performers were those that were malleable enough to play to the festival, not in spite of it -- or… More »

Artist Polaroids From Bonnaroo 2011

Festival photography is generally delivered from the vantage of the photo pits, and so we did, but this year we decided to present a more unique perspective on Bonnaroo's sights. With the help of Graeme Flegenheimer, we distributed Polaroid cameras amongst some charming artists and told them to shoot whatever they wanted. In the… More »

Twin Shadow Makes TV Debut On Fallon

Jessica Alba obsession Twin Shadow performed a beefed-up, rocked-out, at-times messy "Castles In The Snow" on Jimmy Fallon last night. Considering Questlove's somewhere just outside the frame, lots of fabulous hair in one room:… More »

Download The Drums’ Twin Shadow Remix

Jessica pointed out that the “Me And The Moon” video draws out "the loneliness and isolation" of a number of the Drums's songs via the band members' decision not to interact in the clip. Twin Shadow's remix opens up feeling even more isolated until it turns into some kind of sleazy '70s after-hour… More »

Hooray For Earth Vs. Twin Shadow – “A Place We Like”

Twin Shadow's Forget LP pushed 1K units in its first week, not a bad showing for George Lewis Jr.'s Terrible Records-pushed debut LP. "A Place We Like" is a value-added bonus for those grabbing Forget's limited-edition version, written by CMJ heroes/fellow Brooklynites Hooray For Earth, performed by both artists.

Twin Shadow – “I Can’t Wait”

It's unclear if it's a positive result of technology (better, cheaper recording equipment), a negative result of technology (laptop alienation) or just another 2010 trend (post- etc., etc. -wave), but there are a hell of a lot of one-man new-wave projects bringing hoarfrost to our speakers. We've posted about George Lewis Jr., aka Twi… More »

Lemonade – “Lifted (Twin Shadow Remix)”

Lemonade's dubby, steel-drum hummed, liquid-squished Pure Moods come-on "Lifted" got me gushy twice over (in track and video form); enter George Lewis Jr. aka Brooklyn's Twin Shadow (not to be confused with Brooklyn's Twin Sister -- twins hate it when you get them mixed up) to complete the trifecta. His remix recast… More »
