This year in music has been quite impressive. While 2010 gave us clear-cut, stand alone winners, it was much harder to determine which album was Top Ten worthy, let alone the best of 2011. Most sites have published their lists already, and while many albums appear on the same lists, the top ten varies greatly from list to list. Don't expect us to be any different.

Here is the promised second half of my favorite 50 tracks of 2011. If you happened to be within earshot of me at all this year, I want you to know that I am in no way sorry for the amount of airtime these 25 tracks got. Although what I am sorry for is the ridiculous amount of embedded youtube videos on here. I wasn’t feeling particularly creative and I didn’t feel like getting blacklisted :X … 25 Earth Girl Helen Brown :: “I Walked All Night” [...]
Haunting and dreamy all in one little 4 minute package. Twin Sister - Kimmi in a Rice Field (Balam Acab Remix) — Basil

Long Island quintet Twin Sister hit the ground running in 2008 with their impressive debut, the EP Vampires With Dreaming Kids. The four tracks on this plus the six from last year's follow up EP, Color Your Life showcased three things; Andrea Estella's chameleon like vocal abilities allowing her to adapt her voice from hushed whispers to high pitched tension, the bands' excellent song writing skills, and the diversity of sounds and atmosphere they can create from one track to the next. With the release last month of In Heaven, all this has come cohesively together to produce a superb [...]
Porque ontem rolou o remix do Balam Acab pra essa faixa do Twin Sister . Posts relacionados: [Remix] "Kimmi in a rice field" (Balam Acab), Twin Sister [Single] "Gene Ciampi", Twin Sister [Single] "Bad street", Twin Sister
Balam Acab has been on a roll with his remixes and most recently he served up a remix of Twin Sister's , 'Kimmi in a Rice Field'. He stretches out the song into what you'd expect from his previous reworks. But this ones a tad bit more intriguing for some reason. Clocking in at 3:17 the tune's high-reverbed and a loosley dubbed swaying feel cloaks the mind, body, and soul with a persistent progression of clicks, pops, and synths. Check it...

The Brooklyn via Long Island group is coming to a city near you!
Twin Sister's In Heaven has been my most-played most-inviting record for the last cwhile: hardly off the stereo, iPod or turntable so it's really album of the month. It's a sonic space where dream pop, synth pop, new-wave, indie-pop, disco and funk co-exist and are interchanged in a barely noticeable fashion. That the five-piece New York band do this in such an understated and easy breezy way, is an demonstration of a high calibre of songwriting. The band's command of texture is at all-times both nuanced and understated. The upshot of this is an expansive [...]
"Propped carelessly on the mantlepiece was a postcard of Millais' 'Autumn Leaves': the pale light fading, the leaves burning, the trees receding, the girls' faces touched by the light." STAL - We Are Two STAL is a Parisian electrogaze project from former M83 guitar player Pierre-Marie Maulini. This is the kind of serene song with which you can float around an art gallery or museum and pretend everyone else doesn't exist; that it's just you, the works and the walls. WE ARE TWO by STAL [...]
Tonight, The Bottleneck, in Lawrence, hosts The Pains of Being Pure At Heart and Twin Sister. The Pains of Being Pure At Heart released their second album, Belong , early this year. The band formed in New York City in 2007 and have been an indie-pop favorite ever since. Here are videos for "The Body" and "Heart In Your Heartbreak" from the latest album. Twin Sister is touring in support of its debut album, In Heaven . Also [...]
Considering how Twin Sister's m.o. hasn't exactly been based on instant gratification, it's all too appropriate that its long-awaited debut In Heaven takes awhile for its charms to fully reveal themselves. For a buzzed-about band, Twin Sister sure took its own sweet time, at least by today's standards, in pulling together its first album, In Heaven. In the time that it takes many a blogosphere darling to come and go, the Long Island quintet has been slowly but surely working up to its debut LP, only releasing a few appetite-whetting EPs since forming in 2008. So while [...]
This new Twin Sister video is part romantic and part fucking frightening, featuring front woman Andrea Estella as a girl who becomes possessed by some succubus-like doppelganger, engulfing her as her evil Siamese twin. *Shudder* Anything sans pupils gives me the heebie-jeebies. The horror aesthetic somehow works well with Andrea's heavenly vocals and serves as an artistic departure from the familiarity of a Long Island block party . Enjoy! Technorati Tags: Twin Sister
