"Fear of death and fear of love are big on this record," Tony Fulgham, singer and rhythm guitar, explains. There''s good reason: Three days into tracking ”Falling Apart” – North Twin''s ebullient 2007 debut featuring the clenched-fist directives "Gasoline," "Carol Anne" and "Broken Legs" – doctors diagnosed bassist Rebecca Young with breast cancer. The Seattle-based quartet (guitarist Tim Dijulio (Lazy Susan) and drummer Rick Cranford (Radio Nationals) round out the combustible rhythm section) says Young''s steadfast resolve defined the album''s distinct sense of urgency. “Rebecca never missed a show or rehearsal during the ordeal – the last day of tracking, she was cracking the whip – and the record came out great, with an edge.”

Critics roundly agreed. “Fulgham has a big, soaring voice that can go rough or sweet and sounds just right over North Twin’s righteous jagged crunch,” No Depression magazine wrote of Falling Apart. “Thrilling,” raved American Songwriter’s four-star review.

Stronger at the Broken Places broadens that blueprint. With a release date of January 27, 2009, the album merges the Faces'' barroom grit with lush textures from less expected reservoirs. Listen intently as waves of Elvis Costello ("Fool") and Drive-By Truckers ("Clear as Day") give way to a wash of Tom Waits ("High and Low") and Johnny Cash ("Black River").

North Twin has supported such bands as The Bottle Rockets and the Drams, Son Volt and Flight to Mars and garnered frequent air play on Seattle influential radio station, KEXP and XM’s “Outlaw Country”.
