Twin Shadow in Brooklyn last week (more by David Andrako)
Twin Shadow

Brooklyn band Twin Shadow is set to release their second album, Confess, on July 10 via the 4AD label. The record was inspired by brush with death with main man George Lewis Jr.:

One winter I crashed my motorcycle , with a friend on the back. I shouldn't have been riding that day, but I was young and fearless of the black roads, fast and easy in my ways. As the bike slipped from under us my head filled with words. The slow motion moments of calm just after surprise and just before regret are bliss. I remember in that moment I wanted to say everything to him. How could I say everything in a split second? How could I bury my words in his heart?

I got a new bike and went to LA to record what is now called Confess...
