STEVE’S TOP 20 ALBUMS OF 2012
06. Twin Shadow - Confess (4AD) - Song: Five Seconds
George Lewis Jr. is back (or is it back from the 80s)? Building on his already established reputation for a great mix of synths and new wave leanings, Confess is a great release. After a motorcycle accident, Lewis began work on this follow-up to Forget. One of the few artists that can bridge classic R&B with the Human League. I also kept thinking of how this works as a soundtrack for a John Hughes movie at times too. At the centre is the always smooth croon of Mr. Lewis at times channelling Bowie and Bryan Ferry for me.
