A skyline of towering peaks
Twin Shadow - Forget

The most precious treasures are often those found where least expected. Who knew, for example, that George Lewis Jr, toiling away in his Brooklyn digs, was sitting on one of the year’s finest electronic pop records?

Grizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor apparently did - he co-produces here - but the joy of discovery remains for the world at large. A daydream-like haze smudges the crispness of the beats while Lewis sings his osmotic melodies, his tones akin to Richard Swift gone disco. ‘Single Slow’ stands tall but is matched throughout in a skyline of towering peaks. A rare find.
