Slim Twig may be only 26 years old, but he has nevertheless spent the last decade banging out a discography that it would take some artists a lifetime to amass. Since his teens, the prolific Canadian has unleashed a non-stop onslaught of singles, EPs and albums, all the while working with other artists and even finding time to maintain a sideline in acting along the way. On August 7, New York City’s renowned DFA label will give the world the next Twig album, Thank You For Stickin’ With Twig, coming on the heels of his production work for U.S. girls, two film scores, and the DFA reissue of his A Hound at the Hem album.
With significant assistance from vocalist Meg Remy and co-producer Anthony Nemet, Twig has crafted an album that brings together several of the sonic threads that have wound their way through his discogaraphy over the years — a subversive rock ‘n’ roll sensibility, an adventurous approach to production, and predilection for using cutting-edge technology to create a disorienting swirl of sound. Besides the digital and vinyl versions, there will be 10 limited-edition gold vinyl copies released, each in its own custom frame, and including a signed, number letter of authentication. Can’t wait till August? Check out the first single right now.
