Quick Before It Melts reviews Historical Tumblers

Historical Tumblers blends the band’s penchant for  sharp melodies, succinct songwriting, and muted instrumentation into the smoothest, most refreshing drink your ears have ever tasted.

It is ridiculous how talented, and yet so underrated Twin Library are.  Is it because they don’t push the PR machine they way lesser bands do?  Is it because there’s a glut of musicians out there making so much noise that ace tracks like “Right Around The Wrong Time” never get their due?  ”Swallows” is barely long enough to be a song, yet it perfectly encapsulates it’s lyrics: “And when it ends does it ever end/it never begins”.   I often remark about how not a single moment or note is wasted on Twin Library records; with Historical Tumblers, it’s not their musical efficiency that impresses me, it’s the way that this album draws me into repeated listens.  It’s not because a single play though isn’t satisfying in its own right, but because my thirst for Twin Library’s sound cannot be quenched.”

BeatRoute reviews They Were Marked As Targets

"acoustic guitars and muted drums lead the way in these two-ish-minute long tracks while the band points its fingers at the darkness closing in…every melody feels perfectly placed, completely necessary"
