The Twilight Sad are an indie rock band from Kilsyth, Scotland formed in late 2003. The band is composed of James Alexander Graham (vocals), Andy MacFarlane (guitar/keyboards) and Mark Devine (drums). They have released four full-length albums: Fourteen Autumns & Fifteen Winters (2007), Forget the Night Ahead (2009), No One Can Ever Know (2012) and Nobody Wants To Be Here And Nobody Wants To Leave (2014). Where their debut album mixed post-rock and post-punk with heavily delayed shoegaze guitars and folk elements, their second album is more influenced by early krautrock. The band experienced a stylistic shift on their third album that replaced the wall of sound with analog synths in a new wave style.

"Nick Principe, the sole proprietor of Port St. Willow, has made a record of falsetto-heavy, atmospheric mope-rock played at lugubrious tempos. He insists that it should be be listened to as a whole. This is not the sort of thing that gets you noticed in 2012. But while his debut LP Holiday lacks cultural cachet or wow factor, there's another kind of immediacy here if you're wired a certain way. This kind of spare urban brooding is often the result of some serious heartbreak, making you want to really listen for the lyrics. Whether Principe has endured the kind of personal tragedy that sometimes makes its way into press kits is ultimately irrelevant. This record is intensely absorbing based solely on what it's willing to explicitly share." -

Here's an incredibly ethereal band that is not shoegaze at all--just a sympathetic of the great undiscovereds in contemporary moody effects-driven rock...they use a steady, understated, anchor beat, loping, limber basslines, and then, momentously, spiderweb guitar parts that circle, tickle, chime, ring, and repeat, looping into peacefully mesmeric riffs. Thus, they have more in common with not only For Against, but The Feelies, Murmur R.E.M., the 'Beginning to See the Light' Velvets, Chills, and ’80s Brit postpunk than dreampop—even if the effect is as dreamy, beautiful, and greatly affecting. - Jack Rabid, The Big Takeover Jack Rabid, THE BIG TAKEOVER
