The surgery never left
The more time I spend listening to Twin Library, the more I fall under these Edmontonians’ spell. This spring they released The Abandoned Reel (reviewed here) and have now followed up that full length with a new EP, Metropolis, that buzzes with urban electricity and grit. I recently spent a week in New York City during which the flames of Hell seemed to be shooting from the sewer grates, and this EP would have been the perfect soundtrack for my madcap Manhattan holiday: the pounding, relentless beat of the city accompanied by intense hum of life meted out in small but powerful doses.
Metropolis is available as a free download from Twin Library’s Bandcamp page, but donations would certainly be welcomed to help them buy more guitar pedals and fund future recording projects. I threw the boys five bones for the pleasure of owning these four tracks, and hope you’ll do the same. And while you’re at it, spread the word around about these guys. They’ve been consistently churning out great stuff, getting better and better each time they step into a recording studio (make-shift or otherwise), and I can’t for the life of me understand why someone hasn’t signed this band yet. If I ever started my own label (and don’t think I haven’t thought about that!), they’d be my first signing.
