DFA RECORDS ANNOUNCES NEW Slim Twig ALBUM, THANK YOU FOR STICKIN’
WITH TWIG, OUT AUGUST 7TH
LISTEN TO FIRST SINGLE, “SLIPPIN’ SLIDIN’”
Thank You For Stickin’ With Twig is the latest long-playing album from the artist known to the world as Slim Twig. Coming out August 7th on DFA Records, you may be surprised to know that it represents the fifth album by the Toronto-based songwriter/producer. Twig has released these previous records among a swath of EPs, singles and one-offs, displaying in the process a complete disregard for genre or consistency. In what form then, do we now find the twenty-six-year old? His record, A Hound At The Hem, reissued by DFA last year was completed in 2011. So, what has Twig done since? After producing two albums for U.S. Girls (U.S. Girls on Kraak in 2011, Gem in 2012), and scoring two films (Sight Unseen and We Come As Friends (winner of a Special Jury Awardat Sundance), Twig found himself in 2013 at a creative impasse. He had been through various full band incarnations live and on record. Something in this rubbed off on the recordings found on Twig’s latest.
