The Brooklyn-based and Virginia-born trio known as Twain, made up by Mt Davidson, Pete Pezzimenti and Ken Woodward, performs at the Knitting Factory tonight.
The three, who have appeared as one half of Spirit Family Reunion, released Life Labors in the Choir in April. The album is a big departure from the sound of SFR, carrying more of the vibe and feel found on albums by Bonnie “Prince” Billy and The Low Anthem, featuring Davidson’s gentle vocals and various alternative instruments in the background. Of note is a song called “Ashville/Farm Remedy.”
Here’s what Davidson had to say about the song…
“It’s about really seething with jealousy, and then waking up the next morning – on a farm in this instance – and realizing how beautiful everything is and how ridiculous it is to envy anybody or thing.” – Mt Davidson
