Shellac and Vinyl

Hamilton’s Sean Thompson is the real name of the electronic musician ttwwrrss (prounounced “towers”). His second album is a tense powerhouse of remarkably forward looking electronica. With so many modern electronic artists relying on cliche, tired breakbeats and beat dropping, Hamilton has weaved together a startlingly engaging mix of techno, dark ambience and industrial. Each track is atmospheric with just the right touch of glitchyness. He’s just in his early 20s too. This is just his second album to boot. This album came out of nowhere and stuck in my head all year.
