Twin Sister – Color Your Life

July 29, 2010

Twin Sister often get compared to Stereolab, and I can certainly hear the similarities.  I would emphasize, though, that Twin Sister are like an American Stereolab. By which I mean they’re led a bit more by intuition and a bit less by pure theory; they’re influenced a bit more by the simplicity of rock and a bit less by baroque European disco stylings.

Put more simply, they have their influences but have developed a sound that’s all their own. Which is all the more remarkable, seeing as this six-song EP “Color Your Life” is only their second release. The record is consistently good, with more than a few brilliant moments. Including those from the best track, “Lady Daydream,” performed live at the Middle East, below.
