Charleston, WV’s Blue Twisted Steel has just released Intro and it is something special. Imagine (if you will) a recording that is part blues-funk, part singer-songwriter, and all original, and you would be getting close to the sound produced by Blue Twisted Steel.

In this six-song EP, core band members Josiah Spangler, Abigail Spangler, and Evan Olds cover a lot of ground. The project is book-ended by a pair of instrumentals, “Intro” and “Outro”, which are essentially two sides of the same coin. In between the instrumentals is a near-perfect collection of songs.

With its warm acoustic sound, the nouveau folk “Tar And Feather” is one of the EP’s highlights. As heirs apparent to acts like Simon and Garfunkel, or Peter Bjorn & John, the Spanglers’ harmonies are a perfect fit. Honest and beautiful, this song builds wonderfully, ending in a play-out which features bowed bass, shimmering guitar, and far-away harmonies. Conversely, the bluesy rock of “The Carpenter” drives hauntingly, with its spacey instrumental bridge, and a drum part that would make Steve Gadd proud.

The only down-side is that it is not long enough. Am I gushing here? I could go on, but I will not. You need to hear this music. - Spill Magazine



Blue Twisted Steel is a husband-and-wife lead band based out of Charleston, WV. Members include Josiah & Abigail Spangler and Evan Olds. 

Blue Twisted Steel's EP "Intro," released in late 2022, includes original post-americana songs with genre-blending arrangements and undertones of psychedelia. The band's recent reformation began in the summer of 2021 after a four-year performing hiatus. During these four years, the band wrote the songs for Intro, as well as several others, and finally began tracking in July of 2021. The upcoming EP was recorded and engineered in the Appalachian mountains of West Virginia by Kenneth Clutter, mixed by Rick Kwan, and mastered by Matthew Agoglia of The Ranch Mastering.
