Pick of the Day – October 25th: Twin Shadow – Forget

Twin Shadow – Forget

Yet another album that went somewhat unnoticed when I first downloaded from iTunes.  I was actually on vacation….somehow remembered I needed to listen to it, and then proceeded to purchase a physical copy while I was at Earshot, in Greenville, SC.

Okay…..it’s more 80’s synth, but not really the heavy-handed variety.  And yes, it’s really good.  But the level of quality is very hard to quantify how great this debut is: soaring choruses….very soulful….but still every much a “rock” album.  There are lots of album review that spit hyperbole about it.  Slightly overhyped, but probably one of the best albums of the year – and one of the best debuts (easily) in a long while.  I think it just needs to be heard.  Recommended.
