There are certain songs that are undeniable. I remember the day Jason Bentley started spinning Twin Shadow’s new single “Five Seconds” because it’s one of those songs – a new wave, dance jam with lyrics that are a mantra about trying to reach someone.
“Five seconds in your heart
Straight to the heart
I can’t get to your heart”

George Lewis Jr., is based in Brooklyn, but has deep connections to LA. Apparently his new album was inspired by motorcycles rides he took in LA after a hiatus following an accident and this track has that full throttle feeling. It takes off in the first second and doesn’t let up until it ends 4:20 minutes later.
Also, he wrote a letter to LA apologizing for not announcing a date in our fair city on his upcoming tour (which includes stops in Santa Barbara and San Francisco), then he invited folks to a small intimate show at the Masonic Lodge at Hollywood Forever Cemetery. The show is on Wednesday but I’m sad to say it’s already sold out.
Twin Shadow’s 2010 album “Forget” was big in indie circles and folks are anxiously awaiting the next full length, “Confess”, which will be out July 10. He promises to play songs from both on his LA stop, so it will be interesting to hear reports from those lucky enough to attend.
