Brand New Album from No Museums

nomuseumsI’ve written about No Museums before, and in fact, quite a bit if you include the band’s previous working title, Twin Library. Luckily, you have the chance to have the band re-introduced into your life with a brand new album of great pop songs. Seriously, when someone lists their influences as GBV, Wedding Present, Television and Velvet Underground..it’s hard not to like them if they can write a song. Frightening Camera just popped up for free, but do the world a favor and donate to the cause so more great songs can be recorded in time for the next No Museums LP. Stream the entire thing below!

Twin Library Now Named No Museums

nomuseumsYea. Alberta’s Twin Library have officially, or quietly, changed their name to No Museums.  The name change doesn’t mean that much, as the music still sounds great, which is good considering the band now has a new EP (mini-album?) up for the listening.  There are all sorts of musical nods here, but I enjoy the band’s approach to craftsmanship; they’re creating this basement folk music with just hints of distortion that swell and build throughout.  Definitely a nice touch. Enjoy your listening.

New Album from Twin Library

twinThere are so many bands writing creative music today, that it’s quite nearly impossible to get to hear them all.  With that in mind, I’d like to remind you about the Canadian act, Twin Library.   I’ve written about the group before, and as I’m always stalking my favorites, I was made aware that they’ve just put up a great new album, Historical Tumblers. Personally, this track is one of my favorites on the record, though it’s also one of the shorter numbers; it’s a very simple bit of melody that draws me in every time.  You can currently pick up their latest record for the always reasonable NYP (Name Your Price) by visiting them HERE.

New Album from Twin Library

twinlibraryI like to spend my weekend searching the old Interwebs for great music that a lot of people have ignored, and I didn’t have to go too far to find Twin Library, who I’ve talked about before.  The group quietly released They Were Marked as Targets this weekend, and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed spinning the record over the last few hours.  It’s really subtle indie rock with quiet melodies and memorable lyrics, making the perfect soundtrack for the gently sweeping change in Fall weather.  The band has been kind enough to offer up the album for the PWYW price, and as always, we suggest you donate something to keep great music coming our way.

New Music from Twin Library

504246447-1I’ve been relaxing all day with a plethora of emails that I skipped over for a few days, and the one record that stuck out for me was the new release from Edmonton’s Twin Library, Lowways.  It’s most folk, though there’s a quiet element to the recording quality that makes it extremely personal.  But, while there are some really soft moments on the album, there are also experiments with noise, which provide a little bit of differentiation, giving the record more endurance from spin to spin.  I chose the track below because it’s the first track that really builds your experience with Lowways.  You can grab the whole album for the NYP option  HERE.
