The Twilight Sad: The Twilight Sad (Fat-Cat)
Dreamy Scottish indie-rock. Heavy Scottish accented vox; sings in a longing melancholy tone (kinda like Interpol, but not as dark). Sweet rock guitars, minimal accordion low in mix. Too intimate and present to be ethereal, but still atmospheric. Muffled washes of drum/bass/guitar flow under dramatic vox phrasings. No Fccs. All quite lovely, though a bit self-serious…order of preference: #3, 1, 2, 4, 5
1) 3:55 – yearning pop vox. light accordion. Muffled instrumentation drone in background. Kicks in about half-way through. Awesome, epic guitar + splashy cymbals. Disintegrates into an awesome wash of noise for final 0:30.
2) 4:47 – mostly bare emotive vox carries tune over ballad plodding drums. Gets louder @ 1:40. Melancholy, but not quiet. Last 1:00 quiet tremolo drones. “The kids are on fire in the bed room”.
3) 2:37 – muffled driving pulse. Sing-song repetitive vox. Cool shrill electric guitar commentary on vox line. Some piano chords. Quite+atmospheric. Pretty, but dark. kinda like Interpol.
4) 5:43 – starts with dreamy tremolo guitar. simple drums enter. Melancholy rock vox. Neato accordion +bass swells. Drama-vox (a bit of emotive screaming).
5) 8:46 – quiet post-rocky vibrato guitar. Almost bare dramatic vox phrasings. Builds. Wash of guitar distortion ½ way through track. Same neato melancholy upper-register melodic guitar as #3. “epic”, but I’m not sure where it’s going (how fitting for the lyrics…)
