The gist Twig welcomes us back to his weird and wonderful world The music Slim Twig's last album A Hound at The Hem was a bizarre concept album of operatic rock compositions, not too dissimilar to a Scott Walker record, but also mixing a myriad of other influences. That album was actually recorded way back in 2010 but not released by DFA until late last year. Now Slim is back with a brand new record which similarly mashes up the genres, but its done in a very different way.

The gist Long awaited major release for Slim Twig's insane musical odyssey The music Slim Twig is a Toronto based musician, specialising in rather grand theatrical pieces with operatic vocals in the vein of Scott Walker. Fittingly this album already has a bit of a story of its own. A Hound At The Hem is a concept album, a suite based on Vladimir Nabokov’s Lolita, it was also recorded way back in 2010 and self-released on Twig's own Calico Corp label.
