As a special Record Store Day release, the debut album from The Twilight Sad is being reissued as deluxe double vinyl package with never before heard tracks, unseen original artwork and the remastered debut in full.
Originally only as a UK RSD release, copies of the LP are now being made available internationally in time for the Digital release on May 19th.
Fourteen Autumns and Fifteen Winters', is the Twilight Sad’s debut album - an LP that more than lives up to the early promise of their critically acclaimed US-only 2006 EP. Epic in scope and equally as intense, the band are inspired by a diverse range of music from Van Dyke Parks to Phil Spector, Daniel Johnston, and beyond, although the band are as influenced by their immediate geography (‘the sticks just outside Glasgow’), as they are any particular musical reference points. Recorded at Chem 19 and Ca Va studios, Glasgow, and mixed and produced by the band and Peter Katis (Interpol, Mercury Rev, Mice Parade) in Tarquin Studios, Connecticut, 'Fourteen Autumns...' is nevertheless liable to evoke a more familiar indie canon, from white-noise era Creation Records, to fellow Scots Arab Strap or Mogwai.
Pitchfork – “The Twilight Sad approach the darker side of growing up with consideration and dignity, and manage to maintain a proper perspective. "As my bones grew, they did hurt/ They hurt really bad," an angst-filled songwriter from another generate on once sang; the Twilight Sad do a tremendous job of remembering that ache.”
Drowned in Sound - "A multi-layered, massive masterpiece; nine songs both tender and touching yet at the same time powerful enough to knock your face clean off your head.."
Limited to 500 copies.
