Still in love...with the Twilight Sad.

For Record Store Day this year -- yes, it should be every Saturday, but this year it'll officially be April 19 -- the Twilight Sad are re-issuing their debut record, Fourteen Autumns and Fifteen Winters. This was one of the first records I felt compelled to review for this blog, just as The Wrong Car was one of the first reviews I submitted to Your Flesh in 2010. The Twilight Sad is the type of band you simultaneously hope is your secret and want to shout about to everyone you know. I felt this way in 2007 and continue to feel this way now. Give this record a chance if you never have; it is undoubtedly one of the most gorgeous records of all time and can easily compete with favorites from decades past. The Jaguar will become your new favorite guitar.

This said, the reissue of Fourteen Autumns will feature demos not released on the original album (see "Untitled #4," above, for one). A full track listing, as well as European tour dates, during which the album will be played in full, can be found on Fat Cat's site.

Additionally, a free download of their recent performance with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra can be found here.
