Twine's self-titled album, their debut release for Ghostly International, is a record about the difficulties of 21st-century communication and the universal threads that unite the physical and immaterial worlds. The experience of Twine is the static on telephone lines, the nighttime whispers, the sounds of the aether; a record of dizzying percussive glitch, eerie textures and vocals grated into a dense fog, a collective but coded dialogue.Cleveland, Ohio's Greg Malcolm and Boulder, Colorado's Chad Mossholder comprise a unique musical entity. Twine is the culmination of their extended history, which includes their acclaimed 2002 LP Recorder for France's Bip-Hop and their distinguished catalogue for Chicago's Hefty Records and Sweden's Komplott. Their self-titled LP contains a mysterious and unresolved quality, the result of the musical relationship which the group's two main practitioners share. Making music together from across the country, their collaborations are exercises in postmodern abstraction. Songs become experimentations in the virtual realm, with files bounced back and forth across time zone and singular ideas becoming collaborative.As much a noisy, ambient experience as any heard today, from Fennesz's Endless Summer to Black Dice's Beaches and Canyons, Twine also draws influence from the free-floating, sand-blasted vocals of Cocteau Twins. This is a story of the fuzzy lines that connect and distance humanity, and the spiritual in-between that emerges in the nighttime hours.
