Conclusion: I like his stuff, it's very Duran Duran meets Grizzly Bear and Kele (Bloc Party Lead Singer). I like how he uses sounds from things like toys to sounds like the motion of a boot stepping into fresh snow... Everything is music to him. I also think it's cool to hear something with influences from three different parts of the world (Florida+Brooklyn+Copenhagen). It's great that he got Chris Taylor to produce his album because I think it really adds to the mellow-ness and chilled out feeling of the Album. George (Twin Shadow) decided he wanted Chris Taylor to produce his album after seeing his love for using different sounds at a Grizzly Bear Concert in Copenhagen. Weeks later Chris emailed George interested to work together... Awesome! The Album Forget didn't take long to sink in for me which is a good sign! I'm really excited for the show tomorrow and hopefully I have something fun to report back to everyone.
