    I was trying to come up with a way to describe her in the thread title and entice new listeners, but I literally can't think of any way other than amazing. Very mysterious and fresh musican Twigs has been writing and producing her stuff and slowly drip-feeding the internet with her tunes. She's only released five songs, four of which were on last year's EP, but they're all wonderful. She just dropped this last night and its stunning.

    'Ache' is my personal favorite though, what a gorgeous, gorgeous song.

    Twigs is a very good friend of mine.

    I can't wait for her to be properly unleashed on the world.

    Is she signed to a major or something? All this mysterious drip-feeding/low key EP release/ID mag cover smells like one of their techniques.

    All the stuff I've heard so far is very good.

    She's signed to XL.

    I like the Janet Jackson vibe she has going on.

    'How's That' sounds like it could be a Janet comeback.

    Some of the songs on the EP are produced by Liam Howe (Marina, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, CocknBullKid, ...)

    Song of the century. Video of the year. I am done.

    She's absolutely amazing. The production on 'How's That'.... I'm slain.

    EP2 is out September 9th on Young Turks. It will probably be the only EP this year to rival Annie's in quality.
     
  10. Re: Twigs - General Discussion

    She's a bit amazing.
     
  11. Re: Twigs - General Discussion

    A new EP! Yessss.
     
  12. Re: Twigs - General Discussion

    'Water Me' left me shaken up. That was incredible.
     
  13. Re: Twigs - General Discussion

    I can't tell if I like her or not. I listen to "Water Me" and i think god this is so boring and so not me, but then I realise I'm listening to it for like the 7th time...
     
  14. Re: Twigs - General Discussion

    This new EP is going to be incredible if the other two new songs are up to scratch with 'How's That' and 'Water Me'. Does anybody else get a 'Maxinquaye' for the 2010's vibe?
     
  15. Re: Twigs - General Discussion

    She's obviously very striking, hip, etc., but while the sound palette is interesting and fresh, her songs just aren't strong composition-wise. I dunno. Feels lounge-y.
     
  16. Re: Twigs - General Discussion

    I haven't given all her tracks a proper listen yet but the visuals are incredibly striking.

    And 'Water Me' is just perfect in every way.
     
  17. Re: Twigs - General Discussion

    Amazing name.
     
  18. Re: Twigs - General Discussion

    THIS is just incredible! I love her already!
     
  19. Re: Twigs - General Discussion

    EP 2 is 'out there' and it's sublime.
     
  20. Re: Twigs - General Discussion

    EP2 is pretty much amazing.
    But what's the deal with her moniker being "FKA twigs" now? A Prince reference or something else?
