Click to listen to Twin Sister's 'Bad Street'

Brooklyn-based quintet Twin Sister released their first full-length album, the dreamy In Heaven, on September 27th. Earlier this summer, the band filmed the video for lead single "Bad Street" during a neighborhood party at singer Andrea Estella's childhood home on Long Island. "Bad Street" is a cheerful pop song with a funky guitar riff that creates a bright, summery vibe. Twin Sister's keyboardist, Udbhav Gupta, tells Rolling Stone that "Bad Street" is "sewn together from many other songs. We had the easiest time recording it, and the video is a representation of what the song is about – being poor, but still having fun." In Heaven is available in stores now, but you can download "Bad Street" for free here.

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
