Listening to Twin Limb’s single “Don’t Even Think” is like gliding on a swift, magical kite through a mysterious mountain canyon. Yes, it’s that pretty. This dreamy and psychedelic, with Lacey Guthrie’s angelic yet insistent vocals pushing out through the swirling sound that she helps create with what I’ll call sad accordion drone, complemented by keyboards, both atmospheric and searing guitar, closely knit female harmonies and a slow, steady funeral march of percussion. Gorgeous. Their debut EP, Anything Is Possible and Nothing Makes Sense was just released on November 13.
This Louisville trio began in 2013 with Guthrie (accordion, vocals) and friend Maryliz Bender (drums, vocals). When they met up in 2014 with producer Kevin Ratterman (guitar, sampled sounds, percussion), they realized how much he could add to their sound and the duo became a trio that amazingly creates an extremely lush and layered aural environment that blends psychedelia with folk. This EP celebrates their musical marriage, and it includes a lovely cover of Can’s “You Doo Right.” It’s unexpected and delightful. Their first single was “Long Shadow,” released back in January.
Twin Limb will be performing in Cincinatti, Ohio on November 27 and in Louisville, Kentucky on December 4.
