Song of the Day – Wednesday 8/25/2010 Twin Shadow August 25, 2010

Brooklyn’s Twin Shadow (aka George Lewis Jr.) has released his debut album, Forget on Grizzly Bear bassist/producer, Chris Taylor’s Terrible Records label.

Now if you’re looking for an unFORGETtable deal, MizMuze has just what you’re looking for!  For a limited time, you can get the entire Forget album here for just $1!!!

Sounding a bit like Bauhaus and The Smiths, the video is a parody of the 1990’s Calvin Klein porn casting couch commercials…check it out and see if Twin Shadow really has “BIG talent”…
