Early last week, I announced here that I had learned, from Andrea Estella herself, that Long Island's Twin Sister will be having a new album out later this year. Then on June 9th, I learned that they've been signed to Domino Records, the label of Animal Collective, Dirty Projectors, Owen Pallett, and other groundbreaking artists, and have a new album, In Heaven, coming out. Nothing in the press release indicates the album was recorded in a beach house in the Hamptons, so I still don't know if In Heaven is the project that Estella told me about, or if she was referring to some next album.

"Twin Sister," their new label claims,
"create the kind of hypnotic pop you've been dreaming about since Galaxie 500 fizzled, cut with Tusk-era Fleetwood Mac thump, and a shot of Lynchian weirdness for good measure. They're slack yet focused, a spark in the dark distance on a desert highway where speed is relative. Formed in Long Island two years ago, Twin Sister want to make music which you could feel comfortable cheating on someone to."
You can listen to Bad Street, a track from In Heaven, here:
