Listen to This: Twin Shadow

March 27th, 2011, byJeremy Freed

The South by Southwest music festival (SXSW — or just “South-by”, if you want to sound like you’re in the know) recently wrapped up in Austin. I wasn’t there, but I know people who were — and some of them likely saw Brooklyn-based Twin Shadow doing his thing at the fest.

Twin Shadow is the stage persona of George Lewis, Jr., a Dominican-born and Florida-raised musician, whose debut album “Forget” has turned him into something of an indie sensation. After scoring a glowing 8.4 review on the go-to indie music site Pitchfork, being named as one of their 50 best albums of the year and chosen as a Rolling Stone Band of the Week, Twin Shadow now seems to be on the brink of getting some serious and widespread recognition.

Check out the video below from the “On Airstreaming” series, and watch out for Twin Shadow in your hometown in the coming weeks.
