iTunes Review

Glasgow, Scotland’s Twilight Sad created their most musically ambitious album to date with 2014’s Nothing Wants to Be Here and Nobody Wants to Leave, combining elements of their previous albums and modifying them into a coherent postpunk/shoegaze statement. Singer James Graham remains the somber type, bringing songs like “There’s a Girl in the Corner,” “It Was Never the Same,” and “Pills I Swallow” a seductive moodiness that evokes The Smiths while musically expanding into a far tougher epic sound. Even the vindictive “Drown So I Can Watch” does so with pulsing immediacy and catchiness. This was recorded at Mogwai’s Castle of Doom.

Amazing Live Performers!

I was introduced to these guys when they opened for We Were Promised Jetpacks in Seattle last night. I was blown away!

We have been missing genius!

I too found these lads via my interest in We Were Promised Jetpacks (an awesome band). However, the albums/cds this band puts out rival the intensity of Jetpacks with even more outstanding lyrics. James is sincere but on stage transforms into a enigma of sounds & tunes. This is by far their best cd. The vocals, lyrics & arrangements make your head spin in dizzy dreams & memories. Each of their albums is a growth in character & style. The Glasgow sound gets better and better. Oh, and if you can see them live....a must! Don't know the band? Start with this album.

great album!

After playing a couple of shows in Glasgow that featured extensive pieces of music using an abundance of instruments, they holed up in the studio to write new material. In September 2005, with four new songs in hand, they sent a demo...
