Featured The Twilight Sad stories

For this #tbt chapter of Radiohead Week, we’re reissuing (ha) our original track-for-track tribute to OK Computer. Stereogum’s free, downloadable compilation was released in July 2007 on the 10th anniversary of Radiohead’s classic album, and was the first in a series of tribute albums we’ve produced over the years. (You can check out our tribute… More »

[EDITOR’S NOTE: The Twilight Sad’s most recent LP has been out since February; this Progress Report has been on a crashed hard drive since before that. Now that Cole’s harddrive is back in commission, we thought we’d run this ProgRep because the Twilight Sad deserve it. Let’s go!]

Name: The Twilight SadMore »

Lots of good music videos this week! Serial killers! Shadow-puppet dogs! Primary colors! Air rifles! Inexplicably clownish rap-star art direction! Members of the extended Stereogum family! There’s just a lot to like in this week’s batch, as you can see for yourself below. More »

Robert Smith – “There’s A Girl In The Corner” (The Twilight Sad Cover)

If you’re listening for it, it’s easy to hear the influence of the Cure in everything that gloomy Scottish postpunkers the Twilight Sad have ever done. And it turns out that the admiration is mutual. The Twilight Sad are about to release “It Never Was The Same,” a track from their 2014 album Nobody WantsMore »

The Twilight Sad – “The Airport”

Last year, permanently downcast Scottish indie rockers the Twilight Sad gave us their album Nobody Wants To Be Here And Nobody Wants To Leave, and they’re getting ready to release the album track “I Could Give You All That You Don’t Want.” As a B-side, they’re using “The Airport,” a song from the album sessio… More »

Stream The Twilight Sad Nobody Wants To Be Here And Nobody Wants To Leave (Stereogum Premiere)

Scottish rockers the Twilight Sad are back with another set of sunken-hearted, sky-scraping guitar anthems. Nobody Wants To Be Here And Nobody Wants To Leave, the follow-up to 2012’s No One Can Ever Know, finds the band weaving post-punk and new wave elements into their shoegaze-inflected epics, topped off as always by James Graham’s world-weary… More »

The Twilight Sad – “Last January”

“Last January” is just about the perfect name for a Twilight Sad song, so wistful and frigid is the band’s wide-angle guitar rock. The track, from the melancholic Scottish rockers’ upcoming Nobody Wants To Be Here And Nobody Wants To Leave, sets their trademark brooding at a brisk tempo, building and building without ever quite… More »

The Twilight Sad – “There’s A Girl In The Corner”

It’s been two years since No One Can Ever Know, the most recent LP from Scottish band (and Band To Watch back in 2006) the Twilight Sad. They’ve got a new one on the horizon, though, called Nobody Wants To Be Here And Nobody Wants To Leave, which they’re kicking off via new single “There’… More »

Frightened Rabbit, The Twilight Sad @ Fonda Theater, Hollywood 3/13/13

Scotland triumphantly invaded Hollywood as a double shot of Frightened Rabbit and the Twilight Sad easily sold out the Fonda Theater.

The Twilight Sad – “Not Sleeping (Tom Furse Dub Mix)”

Earlier this year, the Twilight Sad released their stark, unforgiving, dance-inflected album No One Can Ever Know. And next week, they’ll drop No One Can Ever Know: The Remixes, an impressively well-curated collection of reworkings. We’ve already posted remixes from Liars and Com Truise, and now here’s another one. The Horrors’ Tom Furse has turned… More »

The Twilight Sad – “Sick (Com Truise Remix)”

Last month, Scotland’s the Twilight Sad announced the forthcoming release of No One Can Ever Know: The Remixes, on which a host of excellent artists would remix songs from the band’s last album, No One Can Ever Know. We’ve already heard one track from the album — Liars’ reworking of “Nil” — and now, we’ve… More »

At the beginning of the year, Scottish mopesters the Twilight Sad released their harsh postpunk album No One Can Ever Know, and now they’re getting ready to release an album that collects remixes of album tracks. No One Can Ever Know: The Remixes looks to have a seriously strong cast of contributors, including the Horrors’… More »

The Twilight Sad – “Another Bed” Video

The clip for the Twilight Sad’s queasy, visceral postpunk banger “Another Bed” follows a creepily mustachioed video-store clerk who, in his spare time, uses dead bodies as marionette puppets and stages parties with them. Director Craig Murray is the man responsible for this deeply unsettling piece of work, and you can watch it and download… More »

The Twilight Sad – “Another Bed”

In the past, Scottish band the Twilight Sad has made the sort of slow-motion mope-rock that you might imagine just based on their name. But new track “Another Bed,” a selection from their new album No One Can Ever Know is chilly, synth-laden, Joy Division-ish postpunk brood — a sound that, you’ll be happy to… More »

The Twilight Sad – “Sick” (Stereogum Premiere)

A Soundcloud snafu had a lot of tracks temporarily and mistakenly going “public” earlier this month, so if you missed your shot at “Sick” when we posted last time, here it is in an official and everlasting manner. Where the previous No One Will Ever Know LP preview “Kill It In The Morning” had a… More »

The Twilight Sad – “Sick”

UPDATE: Whoops, looks like Soundcloud accidentally made this track available due to an internal glitch. It’s been removed — we’ll letcha know when it’s back up for listening.

The Twilight Sad recently offered their first single, “Kill It In The Morning“, from their upcoming No One Can Ever Know and now here’s their… More »
