    Loved the EPs. Probably the best thing I've heard this year, so I got really high hopes for the LP.

    For those so inclined, this album is great during sexytime. The EPs, too.

    I hope I'm able to grab tickets to her recently announced San Francisco show. Those in the area, she's playing The Regency Ballroom, November 20th. I just learned of FKA Twigs, last month, and, damn, really like her work.

    I'm really happy that I managed to buy tickets for my friend and me. I'm looking forward to seeing FKA Twigs, live, in San Francisco!

    Late to this, just got into this artist recently. I really like what I am hearing.

    Happened on this cool interview/article from earlier this year. From http://www.thefader.com/2014/04/22/fka-twigs-power-play

    I'm glad I got to see her earlier this year at a Coachella pool party before she really exploded. LP 1 is really good.

    Her EPs and album are excellent.
    'Give Up' is my favourite as well as 'Pendulum' and 'Video Girl'

    Robert Pattinson??? I had no idea, how did that happen??

    Her new song, Glass & Patron, takes some getting used to.. as if her breaktrough has resulted in a sensory overload.

    This news is more than a week old but here ye are....

    FKA twigs’ EP3 is on the way, set to feature ‘Glass & Patron’ and ‘Mothercreep’

    Fka Twigs' next release is titled EP3, according to her new collaborator Boots. The US producer, who was introduced to the world via his work on Beyonc’s self-titled 2013 album, has been working with the rising Brit star on her new record.
    In an annotation on lyrics site Genius for twigs’ new track ‘Glass & Patron’, Boots revealed the title of the EP (a natural choice to follow EP1 and EP2) and noted that the opening lines from the track’s video are taken from a different song called ‘Mothercreep’, also set to appear on the EP.

    I saw her at Coachella. Being completely unfamilar with her work, I had no expectation and found it to be a nice performance. Her movements/dancing is modern and her costume was a cross between something you'd wear at Cannes or ball room dancing. I found the songs to sound a bit repetitive so I'm going to have to go and listen a bit more. I think I read or heard somewhere that folks call her the new queen of trip hop?

    Also on Spotify in its completeness.

    It's not the sensual, sleek R'n'B anymore. But instead, rather cluttered beats, complicated song structures, literally "art-pop". Yet, not without charm. I'm surprised by how much I like it. Glass & Patron sounds very good in the context of this EP.

    listened to her entire discography in one go the other day. i like a lot of it, don't like a tiny bit, but also don't LOVE any of it. it's intriguing and i find it seductive, but i don't know how often i'd want to listen to it. it sounds like...really sad sex, if that makes sense?
