Slim Twig
Vernacular Violence
(Paper Bag)
The frustrating circumstances that inspired this recent Slim Twig EP should be worshipped. If failure and rejection always led to dark rockabilly meets wheezy keyboards wrapped in tasty lo-fi production, Webster's would change the definition of failure to "unequivocal success." Recorded in 2006 when Slim Twig (who's just one guy from Toronto) couldn't find anybody to release his music, Vernacular Violencefeatures songs thriving on delivering unconventional pleasures. It's hard to pick a highlight amongst the five distinctly memorable tunes, but the 10-minute Suicide-channelling groove of "White Fantaseee" is particularly thrilling.
