The Residents Tweedles
- Words: Fred Miketa
- Label: Mute
Recorded in Hunedoara, Romania, Tweedles showcases The Residents as they encroach upon their creative peak. After more than 30 years, the masked collective continues to churn out media-manipulating hijinks, taking creepy samples of church bells and street musicians and transforming them into atmospheric narratives about sexuality and obsession. Throughout the record, the experimenters revert back to their textural side, focusing more on tone and melody, (as opposed to their recent descent into full-on musical detective stories). Given the thought-provoking existential lyrics and soundscapes on Tweedles, it's clear that The Residents are still as gripping as ever.
