10 Songs, 43 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

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.

Simply amazing

Was blessed enough to witness the energy and ambiance from these tremendous artist when they opened up for The Cure.Rarely Once every decade are fans eagerly exposed to such a powerful band . 2016 is there big year . They manage to bring back musical meaning and energy that most of today's artist lack , two words for the "Twilight Sad"; simply amazing.

my bloody valentine
joy division

I love this album and the band is amazing live, down to the note. if you like this album don't miss a chance to go see them.
I am a huge cure fan and this is the only band that comes close to that early 80s dark sound (faith and pornography especially) that is still making music. I have listened to nothing but them since I saw them a week ago. their older albums are all buying too.
check out alphabet, I became a prostitute, and cold days from the birdhouse once you are ready to branch off of this album. which might be a while.

great album!

new to the twilight sad, but i'm thrilled to get this album. what a great band; they are kind of a mix between the national and depeche mode to me. the songs, instrumentation, and vocals are all spot on. check out "drown so i can watch", a really terrific song!
