Thank You for Stickin' with Twig
delirious psych-tinged eclecticism from exotically facial-haired new dfa signing.
canadian renaissance man max turnbull has dabbled in production and even acting, but this fifth slim twig set suggests that he's most at home making cosmic art-pop, most often opting for a three-dimensional approach whereby a warped tape aura is overlaid with colourful laser-cut keyboard and guitar melodies. it's a world away from the post-punk dance music the dfa label are known for, but the way a classical orchestra slides gracefully into the low-slung glam groove of 'fog of sex' suggests that james murphy and co's ears are working as well as ever. fans of pop levi may well find twig's restless mix of influences - and luxuriant coiffure - eerily familiar. "the salvador dali of alternative music" - the line of best fit.
