Twin Shadow’s album Forget was available for a paltry $1 for a limited period of time, which is a novel way to discover a new artist and give them a little (in this case, very little) cash at the same time. You can also try the record out before you buy, as Forget is streaming in its entirety at the end of this post.
The album was produced by Chris Taylor from Grizzly Bear, and is mostly a showcase for the talents of George Lewis Jr,, a Brooklyn musician who is clearly enraptured by a broad swathe of music, from Scott Walker to Neu! and Can to angular post punk sounds. It’s worthy of investigation, and it won’t burn a hole in your wallet at the same time.
