We saw local band Twin Steps live last night, and it (further) inspired me to write a post about them; the four songs that they have on their bandcamp are great, but the intense energy that all three dudes bring to the stage is something else. Twin Steps plays a unique, tight blend of garage rock and... surfy-shred-soul. Their track "Wave Of My Emotion" moves between bouts of Devendra Banhart-esque vocals and sparkling surf guitar, all while deftly descending into a realm that seems full of drunk, dancing 1960s teenagers. I love it.
