The Hype Machine has hands (ears?) down been my favorite place to find unique music for the last 5 years. I can thank Hype Machine for inspiring me to start a blog and for keeping me in the loop with the musical buzz. If you’re not familiar with Hype Machine, this is your chance to check it out.
Hype Machine premieres/streams a new album EVERY WEEK. Yes, EVERY WEEK. And this week, they’re streaming Summer Twins’ upcoming record, Limbo. I posted about Summer Twins not long ago when they released their first single, “Demons.” Check it out here.
Summer Twins is a foursome based out of LA and on October 2nd they’ll be releasing their sophomore full length on Burger Records (yum!). Sisters Chelsea and Justine Brown front Summer Twins and with the help of Michael Rey on bass and Andy Moran on guitar and keys, they all teamed up with producer Chris Woodhouse of Thee Oh Sees and Ty Segall to create their new work. It was recorded in an “isolated studio” in Sacramento which strongly influenced their work. Check it out!
