Twin Limb Announces Album, Tour with Jim James + Releases Track

Twin Limb Announce New Album 
Haplo Out October 28

New Video For “The Weather” Out Today via Stereogum

U.S. Tour Dates with Jim James Announced

Louisville’s Twin Limb have announced their first full-length album Haplo today, out October 28 via Suretone Records. A gentle dive into an unconscious realm, the album goes in search of deeper, darker places where we all ultimately connect. The band consists of Lacey Guthrieon accordion, keys, and vocals, Maryliz Bender on drums, percussion, and vocals, and Kevin Ratterman— a veteran musician who has engineered and produced records for artists such asRay LamontagneAndrew Bird, and Jim James from My Morning Jacket— on guitar and sampled sounds. The first single “The Weather” premiered today with a kaleidoscopic, mind-bending video via Stereogum. Twin Limb will be out on the road with Jim James this fall on a U.S. tour, acting not only as his opening act but also his backup band.

 “The Weather” music video is as psychedelic and artful as the band’s musical presence, with images of neon lights and rainbow reflections that create a trippy, chromatic experience for the viewer. The band says of the video:

“The Weather was written when we were going through some big life changes and addresses internal restlessness in contrast with the external world. Our video producer, W.G. Rickel, captured these memories and thoughts with the illuminated scanner that he built for the purpose of shooting the video. He was able to create a surreal landscape that we interacted with while shooting, there are no digital visual effects.”

Twin Limb is self­described as “dream pop”— only in their variation, it’s a dream pop that combines the “pop” of Warhol’s Chelsea Girls with the jagged dream states of Surrealism. Disquieting, emotively loaded, boldly defined yet wide open to interpretation, Haplo is more like the musical equivalent of the paintings or automatic poetry of the early Surrealists. Its darker elements delivered with a markedly pop ease, Haplo is lustrous and immensely play­on­repeatable, though everywhere filled with the pangs and rumbles of an unsettled subconscious.
Twin Limb will be joining Jim James on his solo tour this fall. A full list of tour dates are below and tickets are available here. Presale for Haplo beings September 30.
