The Twilight Sad: The Wrong Car (acoustic)
Today we take a look at a new acoustic release by Kilsyth, Scotland’s ‘The Twilight Sad’.
The band actually got their start playing a few gigs in Glasgow, creating half hour pieces of music that incorporated loads of varied instruments, tape loops from old films and folk songs, effects, toy keyboards and other quirky angles like theremin. This was all in an attempt to find their own sound that they could call their own and continue forward with.
With the latest Twilight Sad record nearing completion the band have a great 8 track acoustic EP to giveaway. Recorded at Glasgow’s Chem 19 studio in 2009, the acoustic EP features songs from their last full-length, Forget The Night Ahead, as well as last fall’s The Wrong Car 12-inch.
In the same vein of their experimental and sampled beginnings, we mixed some Scottish newsclips we found over at archive.org on the ‘SAD’ intro of this piece. Now whether that stands for Scotland Against Drugs or Seasonal Affective Disorder is for your determination ultimately. We hope you enjoy the track and make sure you head over to the website and check out the three videos that they included there from the acoustic recording session.
