Paper Bag Records is psyched to unleash the second piece of Slim Twig’s EP series with the release of Vernacular Violence on August 5th.

Twig’s musical imagination has brought us a handful of self-releases and Paper Bag Records’ release of the Derelict Dialect EP on April 1, 2008 which tapped Slim as “a rising scene star and renaissance-man-about-town”. It’s safe to say that Slim Twig’s unconventional song stylings and “other-worldly” live shows are already winning over fans and media alike.

Slim Twig’s more recent recording sessions have involved a grittier sound, self-coined as Concrete Rockabilly, that began to turn eyes and ears last year especially with the epic track “Whiite Fantaseee”. The Vernacular Violence EP will properly present further clues at what we might expect to see him offer in the near future as he works towards his first full-length album.

Slim has shared stages with the likes of Man Man, Born Ruffians and Miracle Fortress, recently completed a tour with Pop Montreal’s ‘Pop Off Tour’ as the headlining act and will be a part of this Summer’s Pitchfork Festival holding down after-party performance duties. Offstage, Slim can also be seen on screen opposite Ellen Page in Bruce McDonald’s ‘The Tracey Fragments’ as Billy Zero and has composed music for the award-winning short film ‘Letters From R’.
