“In the end we had pieces of the puzzle but no matter how we put them together gaps remained; oddly shaped emptiness mapped by what surrounded them, like countries we couldn’t name” Manic Street Preachers – ‘Doors closing slowly’ Of the many song titles the insta-classic Fourteen Autumns & Fifteen Winters, the one that always seems to stick with me is ‘Mapped by what surrounded … Continue reading Review: The Twilight Sad – Nobody wants to be here and nobody wants to leave // Oran Mor Session
One of our all time fave bands is The Twilight Sad. Between the great lyrical work and an ever evolving sound that mutates from release to release, it’s like finding the right author and relishing on the books released, each one brimming with atmosphere and strong emotions. Continue reading “Interview – The Twilight Sad”
The always evolving beast that is The Twilight Sad show their true colours once again. A reinvention of sorts while still maintaining that very raw emotion on top of the wave of notes and noises. The album (out on FatCat Recirds, Feb. 6) is No one can ever know and although guitars haven’t been chucked like a spent bottle of Buckfast, there is an emphasis on synths.

Greetings, readers drinking styling moose earwax (decaffeinated, natch!) and nicking ginger
cookies biscuits from the recently divorced red-haired bird at the office (buy her a pint) while the boss is buying the 600 quid remaster of Achtung Baby (aka the second best U2 album, after Zooropa. Deal with it). Welcome to another edition of our “off again, off again, hey it’s on again!” single reviews column.

Ah, singles, right:
The Twilight Sad – Acoustic EP
Here’s a no-brainer: We love The Twilight Sad here at the site (specially the Frog and his Pals, as you can see from the illustration by our pal Miller) and The Wrong Car 12″ has blown our socks off all the way back to the shop we nicked them from (a goal in life complete, I guess).
We decided to send the band a couple of questions by email, which were answered by James (vocals) and Andy (guitar). We’ve already interviewed them in July, after their show in Tramlines, and now the time was ripe for a spot of catch up…
The Skinny: The Twilight Sad. New EP. What do you need, a reverberated diagram?
The Review Proper: You want more reasons? It’s some proper music, yo!
A band that has always made my ears pay attention, The Twilight Sad. The song is pretty good but the video it’s the perfect companion piece for it. Can’t wait for september 27 (the day this 12″ is released). Continue reading Wake up song – 145
