CAN YA FEEEL IT? CAN YOU FEEEEL IT? Besides practicing for my try out as a WWE commentator, I’ve been curled up in the fetal position as well, just waiting for the new Twerps album to drop. Sure, they satisfied the hunger with the release of the magnificent ‘Underlay’ EP, but it’s just not the same as typing LP.
They released the bouncy and brilliant pop opus “Back to You’ a few weeks back, and they’ve followed up with “Shoulders”, which shows the other side of Twerps. There’s the funny, wholesome twee Twerps, and then there’s the side that encapsulates modern suburban agony. “Shoulders” sweepingly succeeds in the latter, with a poignant, brave call to arms to sit atop their shoulders, even in the face of getting older.
‘Range Anxiety’ comes out on January 23rd on Chapter Music. Keener for this than seeing fanboys riot over Ben Affleck’s performance as Batman. Also, big congrats to these guys for getting announced on the Burgerama Four Show! Getting to play with Weezer, J Mascis, JEFF the Brotherhood, Roky Erikson and Madlib. Fuarkin’ crazy!
