Twin Shadow, 'Forget' (Terrible)

7
Forget
Critical Mass
Release Date: September 28, 2010
Label: Terrible

by Ian Cohen

A pitch-perfect rendering of New Romanticism is probably not the sort of thing you'd expect from a vanity label run by Grizzly Bear's Chris Taylor. But Twin Shadow is no mere curiosity: Pompadoured George Taylor Jr. has more than enough melodic grace and pretty-boy swag to nail the sound. Forget transcends genre exercise by adding contemporary touches of hip-hop ("Castles in the Snow"), Balearic beach-cruising ("At My Heels"), and morbid lyrics just beneath the deceptively glossy surface.
