Made the mistake to go early to catch openers Lost Boy. They took forever to get ready on stage to play one of the most unbearable sets I’ve witnessed this year.
After a few beverages at another bar I came back to catch the record release party of Twin Sister. Based in Long Island, this 80’s pop synth band makes beautiful and rich compositions that have whispery vocals provided by Andrea Estrella. Their lo-fi dreamy pop music is the perfect soundtrack for those hazy summer days. They remind me a lot of the Cocteau Twins and one of my favorite bands Lush without the fuzzy guitars. Unfortunately the venue created an unpleasant setting as it was overcrowded with no air conditioning or air flow as well as a few power outages. The band wasn’t phased with the interruptions and the music melted into the heat and made for 1 great night. The album has become the most played album on my itunes and they have one of the most simple-digital-fan-friendly-forward thinking website around. Keep bringing that light from a dead star.
