Twin Sister

When: Sat., Feb. 4, 9 p.m. 2012

A fairly new New York City group originally from Long Island, Twin Sister took a while to come out with a full-length statement. The band  released two EPs, ample free material on its blog, and a number of promising singles and videos. After three years in operation, it finally dropped In Heaven in late 2011. Waiting that long for a debut used to be pretty standard, and it's somehow fitting, because the band's dreamy disco-influenced songs hark to another era. In Heaven was underrated on release; an album that grows with every listen, it's full of carefree pop just weird enough to stay intriguing. Singer Andrea Estella sounds like she forms words with a different biological apparatus than the rest of us, giving the songs an exotic aura. Co-headliner Ava Luna is another Brooklyn-based (and very Brooklyn-sounding) rock-R&B 7-piece. Naytronix should be a treat as well - it's the solo venture of tUnE-yArDs bassist and crucial cog Nate Brenner, a quietly renowned musical auteur: At Great American Music Hall (859 O'Farrell St., SF) on Saturday, Feb. 4, 9 p.m., $13, $15,
