New Release: TWIN LIBRARY – The Abandoned Reel

April 6, 2012

We’ve written about Edmonton lo-fi project Twin Library many times over at The iM and for good reason; Michael Betmanis creates some really simple, yet incredibly catchy songs – they also happen to be rather somber at times.

Just recently, he dropped The Abandoned Reel on the world wide web and we’ve had this thing on repeat ever since. Now it’s your turn to check it out in the Bandcamp player below – you can download it under the ‘name your price’ option. Some recommended tracks include, Snow, When I First Heard The Train, Archives and We Never Reached The Mountains.

For more on Twin Library, check out his Facebook page – you’ll be glad you did.
