Twain Releases '2 E.P.s' on Keeled Scales

Twain Releases '2 E.P.s' on Keeled Scales

Congratulations to Twain, whose highly anticipated double EP is out today on Keeled Scales. Titled 2 E.P.s, the 13-track collection represents two distinct moments in the artist's recording history. Side A is New Miami Sound, unreleased material from the Rare Feeling album sessions. Side B is Alternator, an intimate recording of Davidson performing a selection of his songs in a van; it is the first fully solo Twain music to be released on vinyl. Since its announcement, 2 E.P.s has garnered fervent attention from tastemakers including NPR, Brooklyn Vegan, Hype Machine and more.

Twain will tour this spring, first with critically acclaimed label-mate Buck Meek then with art pop legends Rubblebucket. The full list of dates is below.

WHAT CRITICS SAY:

"Twain's music often has the quality of something half-remembered. Like an old cassette,

the sounds on these records are limited to a mild and pleasant midrange and swathed

in a lisping hiss ... the coloring of that sound frames it like a photo in an album." - NPR

"jaunty, golden-hued ... feels tailor-made for some sort of wintertime homecoming montage,

due in no small part to the plinking pianos that double singer-songwriter Mt. Davidson's vocals,

coloring everything with the icy twinge of melancholy that the season brings." - Paste Magazine

"devastating ... delicate ... meditative" - Consequence of Sound

"warm, earnestly-strummed with a pastoral feel." - Brooklyn Vegan

"cosmic folk, bright and sparkling, but with all the caterwauling and rough

bits that the most stoic traditionalist might desire." - Uproxx

"a crushing swell of emotion that sneaks up on you slowly." - Austin Chronicle

"spacious folk-rock anchored by his passionate crooning." - KCRW

"a quirky kind of good." - Bob Boilen, NPR
