Band Of The Day #8 - THE TWILIGHT SAD "That Summer, At Home I Had Become The Invisible Boy"
Slow to make an impact on homeland gig-goers though they’ve been, preferring instead to focus on live performances stateside and subsequently attracting the attentions of our US peers Pitchfork, there’s no doubt that as 2007 has progressed Glasgow’s the Twilight Sad have emerged as one of the biggest, boldest and best draws of the British tour circuit.
Releasing a highly acclaimed debut album can’t have hurt the quartet’s appeal any – hitting shelves via FatCat in May, Fourteen Autumns & Fifteen Winters has proved to be a firm favourite amongst DiS writers and readers alike; expect it to rank highly when DiS concludes its reader-voted top albums of the year. Containing songs that didn’t exactly leap at listeners but crept, coyly and craftily, into synapses utilising canny stealth, the album’s a slow-burn classic of its time.
DiS is therefore mega-chuffed to present an exclusive remix of one of the choice cuts from Fourteen Autumns..., ‘That Summer, At Home I Had Become The Invisible Boy’, as re-imagined with subtlety and love by Björk collaborator Ensemble, AKA Olivier Alary. Originally from Toulouse, London-based Alary’s own self-titled album was released via FatCat last year.
The Twilight Sad tour Europe throughout December, and close their year’s live commitments with domestic shows in London and Glasgow.
