    "Two songs which play out in a little past two minutes combined. If you like it short and sweet this really hits the mark."
    Shuffle It All, June 2011
    "Twin Library is an Edmonton lo-fi rock band, and they have all the right influences - Guided By Voices, The Velvet Underground, The Wedding Present, The Clean - to grab my attention. And having grabbed it, they're offering a couple of opportunities to download their music and name your price. I recommend it - they're terrific. It's beautiful lo-fi music with definite Pollard influences."

Track Name: No Summer
The dark snow like a bird
The last written word and the sound of the heavy air
The hum of a holiday month
Like slower engines and softer seasons ahead

Breaking the black hearts
Breaking the black birds
There is no summer here
There is no sun
There is no time
There is no summer here.
Track Name: Shaking Hands
It's time to study, beneath the lamp light
Beneath the horrors of your town
Describe the furnace, shaking hands that warm us
The perimeter won't tighten anymore

It's mine to race it, shaking hands unsteady
From here on out it's all down hill.
