Forget by Twin Shadow
Released: Aug 2010
Label: MRI
Twin Shadow seems to have all the indie prerequisites: Brooklyn-based, '80s-inspired, Grizzly Bear-approved. But those are just superficial stats that the man behind the moniker, George Lewis, Jr., is able to transcend on his debut album. With a voice that resonates with Morrissey woe and navel-gazing lyrics to match, Lewis adds sparkling synths and drum-machine beats that are alternately ominous and upbeat (think Depeche Mode), and sometimes even funky ("Shooting Holes"). As producer, Grizzly Bear's Chris Taylor adds a crystallized sheen that makes this debut hardly easy to forget.
