about

SELECTED SONGS: TWIG PALACE

For a few short years, Colleen Johnson and Evan Hashi combined their respective powers to become Twig Palace. A playful but mighty force of the late '00s Olympia, Washington music scene, Twig Palace's songs were perfect little sonic worlds, retro-pop gems, each uniquely its own.

In the decade since, the two members have gone on to play in countless bands—Flying Circles, Little Angry & The Sweets, Silver Shadows, The Hive Dwellers, Upside Drown, Reighnbeau, The Mumlers, Lazer Zeppelin, Will Sprott, Mega Bog, to name just a few—but their recordings as Twig Palace have largely faded from memory.

“Your Most Secret Name (Selected Songs 2008-2011)" collects 16 songs from Twig Palace's brief existence. Gathered from self-released CD-R releases, long out-of-print compilations, and cassingles, the album serves as a primer to one of the best lost Olympia bands of all.


REVIEWS

"Across sixteen songs, Your Most Secret Name reinforces Twig Palace as one of the most inventive and distinctive bands from a fertile period of indie music, preserving their music and extending their influence even further." - Various Small Flames
