TWIN SISTER (London Garage, 25/10/11)
Despite Twin Sister devolving between their EPs and their debut from one of the most promising young bands around to sub-M83 retro enthusiasts, this show wasn’t the disaster it could have been. Started off a bit ropey with out-of-tune vocals and a run of weak material, but things massively improved once they got into full-on 80’s funk-odyssey mode. Not a patch on last November’s Lexington show, but at least the gorgeous sleepy-eyed groove of “I Want A House” remains as mesmerising as ever.
