Show Reminder: Wednesday: Bear in Heaven & Sun Airway now includes Twin Shadow!

Bear in Heaven w/ Twin Shadow and Sun Airway, 11/17, Johnny Brenda's

Back in September, I babbled enthusiastically about this Wednesday’s show with Bear in Heaven and Philly’s own Sun Airway at Johnny Brenda’s. ┬áSince then, ┬áSun Airway’s pulled a very favorable 7.8 review from Pitchfork and Noise Narcs favorite Twin Shadow has been added to the bill. I’ve got nothing else to say but “God damn.”

a little bit of nostalgia never hurt anyone

My friend Andy recently introduced me to Twin Shadow’s debut release, Forget. Twin Shadow is the brainchild of Brooklynite George Lewis, Jr., a man who was recently hailed “one of the most stylish New Yorkers” by Time Out magazine.

The record, Forget, has a little bit of that 80s nostalgic sound that always turns my head, and this album’s quite possibly catapulting itself into my top ten of 2009. Since it’s a great listen just about the whole way through, it’s worth heading over to Hype Machine and checking out a few of the tracks, but below is one for you, “I Can’t Wait.”

I’m confused about the official release date, because the album’s been up on Rdio for weeks, though it’s release date was listed as yesterday on many sites. You can head over to 4AD or buy the album on Amazon.
