Twin Shadow stop by Daytrotter

Twin Shadow came out of nowhere to be one of the breakthrough indie bands of 2010. Their album Forget ended up on many of the year end best lists. Lead by George Lewis Jr who's almost stereotypically-ridiculously-indie-cool-looking , they are now at the forefront of the revivalist movement currently surging through indie music. If you know nothing of them, the brief is gorgeously textured synth driven, 80's new wave inspired electronic rock - though those few words don't do the subtlety and dexterity of the compositions justice. Trust me - its very very good.

Daytrotter is an American music blog and major (and not-so-major) indie acts drop by their offices to record 4-5 song sets which are then released to the masses for streaming and download on the daytrotter blog. Drop by their blog (here) and have a listen to whats on offer (Vampire Weekend, The National, Wavves, Titus Andronicus)....but trust me on the Twin Shadow.
