7digital What we said: In a year that also saw excellent albums from fellow New Yorkers Sleigh Bells and Yeasayer, Twin Shadow’s surprising debut stood head and shoulders above the rest. With gloriously lo-fi production courtesy of Grizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor, Forget updated 1980s new wave for the 21st century, proudly showcasing George Lewis Jr’s echo-swathed vocals amongst tinny synthesizers, sparse drum machines and (whisper it) the occasional slap bass. Ignore the album title: from the disco string stabs of ‘Shooting Holes’ to the malevolent synth grind of ‘Castles in the Snow’, Forget is bursting with enduring brilliance.
