Twigs & Yarn: Still Forms Drift CD-r

Twigs & Yarn: Still Forms Drift CD-r

Austin-based duo Twigs & Yarn’s debut album on flau caught me by surprise when it came out in 2012. Its glitchy plunderphonic folk-pop sounded fresh and resonant, and non-album single “Yuurei” was even dreamier. Their second album is a limited CD-r release on Eilean Rec. and is a bit closer to pure ambient than their debut, but there’s still plenty of subtle field recordings interwoven with fragile electronically-enhanced folk songs. “In The Valley” is just super lovely. Some of the songs are loopy and rhythmic, and others get swept away into a lush, richly vegetated environment. Really incredible, I recommend this duo highly. The album’s sold out physically but it’s still available digitally on Bandcamp.
