WATCH SLIM TWIG’S “MAINTAIN THE CHARADE” VIDEO
Album A Hound at the Hem released Dec 1st via DFA Records
Slim Twig’s DFA Records debut, A Hound At The Hem, is released in the UK on December 1st. The spooky new Meg Remy-directed video for ‘Maintain The Charade’ has arrived just in time for Halloween. Need a costume idea? Peep the video below because Slim Twig has you covered.
Originally released on vinyl in an extremely limited run via Twig’s own Calico Corp label and Pleasence Records, DFA will give A Hound At The Hem its proper release on December 1st. Self-produced in fall 2010, A Hound At The Hem is a suite of narrative songs thematically inspired by Vladimir Nabokov’s Lolita. As a concept album exploring the troubling and the taboo and themes like the transformative power of lust, A Hound At The Hem can be interpreted as an echolike response to Serge Gainsbourg and Jean-Claude Vannier’s Histoire De Melody Nelson. Most of all, A Hound At The Hem poses the question; where next for Slim Twig, this promising and original auteur?
