The rockabilly scene, not known for its ability to evolve, adapt and change musically with the times, expends a large degree of effort recreating 50-year-old aesthetics and upholding purist ideals.
But Slim Twig is blowing the dust off his pseudo-billy sound with a laptop rhythm section. He then commits the ultimate heresy by adding synths and strings, as on the disjointed title track to this homemade EP. Brothl Hunting! is new-generation John Spencer as Twig twitches his switchblade-sharp lyrics - "You wanna love me, half-mast/You wanna cold cut me" - over a pounding digi-beat. David Lynch should be all over this.
