Twin Language, the latest full-length record from New Orleans psych rockers Bipolaroid, is available now on 180-gram vinyl and compact disc. It is the band’s first album to be released on Get Hip Recordings!
Since its Nov. 16th release, Twin Language has garnered a lot of interest from the independent music press. See what’s being said about the album:
“It’s brutal, yet pristine, a beautiful mess that will leave you gasping.” (4/5 Stars)
Fred Mills | Blurt
“…crammed with short, sharp, eminently tuneful gems.”
Neil Hussey | Shindig! Magazine
“Balancing an aesthetic evoking a haze of marijuana smoke with a solid backbone of melodic pop, Bipolaroid manages to keep its feet on the ground, but its head firmly in the clouds.”
Michael Toland | The Big Takeover
Bipolaroid celebrated their album’s Nov 16th debut with a record-release show in their hometown of New Orleans. The Times-Picayune offered an excellent preview of the concert, coupled with an insightful interview with frontman Ben Glover. Read the article here.
Shindig! Magazine reviewed Bipolaroid’s new album Twin Language in their latest issue. See what they had to say below:
“This is the fourth LP by New Orleans’ premiere pyschedelicists Bipolaroid, recorded after-hours in a comic book shop, and crammed with short, sharp, eminently tuneful gems. It’s a record which wears its heart – and it influences – proudly on its sleeve, but that’s not a bad thing in this instance. The most obvious influence on display here is that of Syd Barrett. These are songs which seem to slip in and out of focus with a pleasing wooziness, sporting an off-kilter edginess in their indistinct, stoned-sounding vocals and their knife-sharp Telecaster riffs laid over a dense, fuzzy background.
“‘Efflorescent Adolescent’ is grunge Barrett; an indication of what he may have sounded like if he’d emerged from the ’90s Seattle scene rather than the ’60s London one. ‘Mark Twang’ is a breezy rush that’s over in less than half a minute, while ‘Dumbstruck Epiphany’ is multi-layered, chaotic sounding fuzz-pop of the highest order.”
