EDITORS’ NOTES

Long Island’s D’Addario brothers craft another lush, ambitious patchwork of their favorite sounds of the ’60s and ’70s. On Brothers of Destruction, they’re both gorgeously simple (“Beautiful”) and dizzyingly complex—“Night Song” sets the tone for its erratic stumble through baroque pop, dark psychedelia, and prog rock with the opening line “I think I went a little nuts at the grocery store.” Most satisfyingly, “Why Didn’t You Say That?” and “Light and Love” suggest the duo are increasingly willing to let their terrific melodies play out before stuffing them down multiple wormholes.

About The Lemon Twigs

Channeling the Baroque rock of the '60s, Long Island brothers Brian and Michael D'Addario started the Lemon Twigs while they were still teenagers. Like their father, Ronnie D'Addario, the siblings played multiple instruments, counting guitar, keyboards, drums, horns, and strings on their list of proficiencies. In addition to Harry Nilsson, Todd Rundgren, Big Star, and Brian Wilson, the D'Addarios counted the Beatles, Wings, and the Zombies as major influences. Hints of contemporary artists like Sunflower Bean, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, and Methyl Ethel also come through on their debut single, "These Words" b/w "As Long as We're Together." The Lemon Twigs signed with 4AD in 2015 and released their debut, Do Hollywood, the following year. Produced by Foxygen's Jonathan Rado, Do Hollywood was supported by a tour that included Danny Ayala on keyboards and Megan Zeankowski on bass. The Lemon Twigs returned in September 2017 with Brothers of Destruction, a home-recorded EP written largely during the sessions for Do Hollywood and featuring a handful of live staples from their touring set. ~ Neil Z.
