New TOPS track from Upcoming Album
Definitely one of my most anticipated albums of 2014. The long awaited (for me at least) sophomore followup to their 2012 debut Tender Oppositeswill finally be upon us in about a month. The followup, Picture You Staring does not disappoint in the slightest, and I’m counting down the days till I can truly enjoy it on some wax. Arbutus also updated the store page for the album to indicate that pre-orders will come on limited coke bottle clear vinyl and a huge party scene poster!
Even more reason to be excited. Glad to see this release is getting a little something special from Arbutus, it deserves it.
Thanks Yumi Zouma via GvB, for the heads up on Juniore. Sensual french melodies drowned in reverb, sweet and sour harmonies filled with melancholy and rhythm. Anna’s mysterious voice, reminiscent of 60s muses (think Nico meets Françoise Hardy) is at once haunting. B-side of the 7” has some beach house style guitars on fast forward, sounding just as good, and they have one prior 7” also available on their BnDcMp.
Still kinda miss original Twin Sister, and their epic live shows, but this new bastardized incarnation is growing on me. At least this new track sounds closer to their roots for my taste. I’m apprehensibly curious to see where they go with this new Mr. deal. Guess I’ll just cross my fingers that it doesn’t suck.
The Casket Girls unreleased track, live at BSP Kingston.
Now you can really get a better sense of their whole stage performance deal. I think really the only descriptive word here is adorable. Fucking adorable. At one point Elsa & Phaedra left the stage to give out hugs amongst the 40 or so crowd gathered up by the stage. Myself and my best buddy from Boston were front and center dancing our asses off the whole show, and were bypassed as they weaved into the crowd to disperse hugs. To be fair, we had to be the sweatiest people in the crowd, so good call on their part. But as soon as the song was over we got rushed for hugs from their fucking amazing drummer Pete, shirt off and all. Definitely the only person there sweatier than us. That was definitely the hug I wanted.
