Twin Shadow’s “Forget” has quickly become one of my favorite albums of the year. I think my favorite track is “I Can’t Wait,” but “Castles in the Snow,” “Yellow Balloon” and “Forget” are also really strong contenders. There’s a strong new wave influence here (the album was produced by Grizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor) but that might put Twin Shadow in a box that’s just too narrow for the strength of the songwriting and its variety. Just last Friday it was announced he had signed with 4AD.
