Twigs & Yarn is an ambient, mixed-media duo based in Austin, Texas. Small children’s toys, found objects, field recordings, clinking cans, guitars and a variety of other homemade items comprise their subtle textured soundscapes and performances.
After their first acclaimed LP, The Language of Flowers released in 2012 on the Japanese label Flau, their second release Still Forms Drift on Eilean Rec. continues the path to this particular intimate story, that belongs to them : a collage of electronic, acoustic, trembling voices and lonely nights.
Still Forms Drift is a collection of simple improvisations and field recordings gathered between 2013 and 2015. Recorded remotely at various locations in Arizona, New Mexico, Texas and Japan, each composition attempts to capture the unique emotional resonance experienced in that particular time and physical environment. Additional layering and arrangement completed in January and February of 2015.
Last remnants include voice, acoustic and electric guitar, mountain dulcimer, analog synthesizers, looping and various effect pedals. All songs written and performed by Twigs & Yarn (Stephen Orsak & Lauren McMurray). This is their second album.
