Talk about a hole in heaven where some sin slips through. Falling Apart-a seamless, stunning debut, equal parts gamble and grace-echoes with the ethereal purity of the ‘72 Stones and Gram Parsons jamming in a roadside tavern past dawn. The majority of the material-gloriously ragged tunes like “Broken Legs,” “Carol Anne,” and “Motorbike” come to mind-Is precisely that thrilling.Label: SELF-RELEASED

Talk about a hole in heaven where some sin slips through. Falling Apart-a seamless, stunning debut, equal parts gamble and grace-echoes with the ethereal purity of the ‘72 Stones and Gram Parsons jamming in a roadside tavern past dawn. The majority of the material-gloriously ragged tunes like “Broken Legs,” “Carol Anne,” and “Motorbike” come to mind-Is precisely that thrilling. In fact, supporters hail North Twin as the Northwest’s most potent export since The Supersuckers. Makes sense – guitarist Tim DiJulio (Mike McCready’s Flight to Mars), bassist Rebecca Young (Ian Moore) and drummer Rick Cranford (Radio Nationals) come from some of Seattle’s most combustible. “I’ve been chewing on brimstone/I’ve been drinking straight lye,” songwriter Tony Fulgham sings on “Gasoline.” “I’ve been watching the fire grow, baby, wondering how the flames got that high.” Few bands can pull off such an explosion of charcoal and courage.
