The Twilight Babies
Country of origin:
Type of music generally:
Most recent release, monster ep (2005)
Own; occasional covers
Alternative pop/rock with some beats and synths in the background. More pop than electronica, though with an electronic base. Alison Lewis has a high-ish, raspy voice, and the songs are interestingly constructed. (Neile)
Recommended first album:
Adam Walker, Alison Lewis, Mikey Brown
I find this album stuck in my head from the very first track, "Piper Cried" which drives its hooks deeply into my head. So many of the songs here do the same thing—just get stuck in my mind so I want to play them over and over. It's a really strong collection and highly recommended. (Neile)
Recommended for those who liked the first album
Mikey Brown—electric guitar, acoustic guitar, q-chord, clarinet, harp, keys, vocals
The Twilight Babies
I can't pin down exactly why, but I much prefer their first album to this. When I listen to this one, I like it just fine, but the first album got entirely stuck in my player and I kept hitting the repeat button. There's nothing wrong with this one but it just doesn't have that kind of magic for me. (Neile)

Alison Lewis, Adam Walker, Mikey Brown
This is catchy and interesting, and nearly as compelling as if you want me to i could write it down. It makes me very interested to hear their next full-length offering. (Neile)
