The Lemon Twigs

The Lemon Twigs

Once or twice every generation, Long Island introduces the world to artists of such singular originality that they change the very nature of their art: Lou Reed; Jim Brown; Robert Mapplethorpe; Andy Kaufman. With their debut album for 4AD, ‘Do Hollywood,’ The Lemon Twigs have earned themselves a spot on that list.

Throughout their third studio album, 'Belong,' San Fermin brings both elegance and raw passion to their performance, an achievement that Ludwig-Leone attributes to the band's increasingly potent chemistry. "One of the nice things about this record was that, for the first time, I was writing for people I know super well and have performed with hundreds of times," he says. "I feel like I really understand these musicians now and know what they want to do."
