Twin Limb - 'Haplo' (album stream) (premiere)

Louisville's Twin Limb offer up their new album of Surrealist dream pop before heading out on the road with Jim James.

Louisville's Twin Limb have been working as the back-up band for Jim James' (My Morning Jacket) solo shows and now they are stepping out on their own with a new album, Haplo, releasing this Friday. The group is Lacie Gutherie singer/accordion player, MaryLiz Bender drums/percussion/guitar, and Kevin Ratterman on keyboards/sound effects and they play a form of dream pop that brings some darkness to the proceedings. This set of songs is haunting and visceral, made of tougher substance than your average airy dream pop. Twin Limb's music is less about the air than about the earth as it encompasses the aesthetics of Surrealist art and poetry.

Bender says, “This was the first album we’ve recorded, but the second we’ll have released. Its the album that brought the three of us together. Its so special to finally giving birth to it in the world.”

Twin Limb is headed back out on tour with Jim James this fall and winter as they both open for James and serve as the backup band for his sets.
