So The Twelves are great. Let's just start with that.
The bloggers have been wetting their beds over these kids the past few days, so I figured I should do the same.
From Rio de Janeiro, Brasil, The Twelves were formed by the duo João Miguel and Luciano Oliveira back in 2006. The name came from the strange coincidence of their birth dates: twelve of July of 1980. So they're cancers, just like me. Even more rad.
Here's a mixtape they just released that has honestly provided me with some of my very best 38 minute 2 second moments this past week. It includes unreleased remixes they did for Zeigeist and The Virgins. If you ask me, its the best extended stretch of sound since LCD released 45:33.
