Ray Concepcion caught Twin Sister and mucked it all up with psychedelic, pulsating visuals. This is so BRAINY. By which I mean, your brain will only respond to what your pupils do. The timing is perfect, if you know what I mean. No more work after you watch this. It’ll be real hard.

I don’t know where/when Ray shot this, but it’s only been up for 4 days. Perhaps it was at the album release show at Glasslands on Friday.

Twin Sister shows are something to experience, and then hold on to, near and dear to your heart. The performances are visceral, you feel like you’re in the groove, you’re riding that bass line like it was yours. Each song signifies lust, fever and growth. You’ll go through all those feelings, and in that order.

NYC Taper captured, in fine form as always, the band at Mercury Lounge last week. As Merc shows often are, it was likely an industry heavy audience. The band played a short set, giving their sexier and poppier tracks preference, skipping my fav: “The Other Side of Your Face.”

Get the whole show at Taper, and “Other Side” below.

Also, the band has issued a challenge: REMIX them.

At Tres Hermanos

Twin Sister played late Friday night on an Infinite Best Records rooftop in Williamsburg. Unfortunately, I was too busy watching Ghostbusters to attend. BUT, luckily, Ian Perlman was there to catch the band in all their glory. They played a Daft Punk cover, but this jam, which Perlman eloquently dubbed “End Jam,” is what I love about Twin Sister. They are a dedicated band. They find a rhythm and they go. They take it as far as possible. Not unlike a jam band, just without soloing. This is a band that builds gigantic waves of sound, the wave grows bigger and bigger, and then comes crashing down all over you.

The rhythm section is one of the best i’ve seen in years. Check out the movement on these guys. (Gabe on bass, Bryan on drums.) Utter ridiculousness.

I saw Twin Sister just last weekend at the Tortilla Factory in Bushwick and they played a similar jam to this, maybe it was even this jam, but it didn’t end the set, it was used as a segue between “Other Side of Your Face” and “All Around and Away We Go.” Apparently, Twin Sister mixes shit up.

If you haven’t seen the band yet, your time has surely come.

PS- Perlman has more videos, including “All Around and Away We Go,” their “single”?

More nugs from Saturday night.

I really love Eric’s style.
