Concert Preview:GvsB Presents Twin Shadow at Trees(Latin Morrissey?)

The Dominican Born,leather jacket wearing, pomade hair-styling Indie-Pop crooner George Lewis Jr has jumped from buzz dude  to one our favorite indie-heart-breakers. Twin Shadow highly lauded sophomore album was stronger reflection of George’s dark-romantically melodic demeanor(compared to Forget). Sure, the imprints of 80’s pop/new wave is well-marked in Twin Shadows sound  but it’s George’s bustling individuality and superb vocals that separate him from the rest of those copy-cat “revivalists”. Twin Shadow is in many ways like the leather jacket that George gallantly(more like cocky) wears in his album cover. Sure, its nostalgic piece of clothing, but he’s not wearing for the sake of “novelty”  rather he wears it with a self-assurance and bravado only the true pop stars can transmit, in short he makes it his OWN damn leather jacket. With that sort of  pop-prowess  many in the Latin-Indie Blogosphere have even started whispering “Latino Morrissey?”. I let you decide whether you want to use that tagline, though that’s a hell of a compliment since everyone ones how beloved Morrissey is in Latin-America.

Dallas Tejas based blog Gorilla Vs Bear(one of our favorites) will be presenting Twin Shadow along with Nikki and the Drove at Trees in one of the most  highly anticipated shows of the fall(that’s saying something) and it’s expected to be packed(sell-out alert). So don’t be a pendejo and buy those tickets now!
