ESPECIALLY for Record Store Day 2014, The Twilight Sad have reissued their debut album which was first released in April 2007.

The Record Store Day release, Saturday 19 April 2014, is through FatCat Records and the Scottish trio have some special treats instore for fans on the release.

The deluxe double vinyl edition of Fourteen Autumns & Fifteen Winters will contain never-before-heard tracks, unseen original artwork and the remastered debut in full. The vinyl, limited to 500 copies in the UK, will be available from participating independent record shops on Record Store Day.

‘That Summer At Home I Had Become The Invisible Boy’ is much more gentle than we are used to, its lyrical soul carries you along with a story of childhood and family life. But like most of the best on this record, the most special moments come in the last minute as a distorted fade.

Previously unreleased track ‘Untitled #4’, which was part of the first demo they ever sent to FatCat Records back in 2005, is one of the first songs they ever wrote as a band and is included on the release.

That particular track is a nine minute progressive and experimental wonder of a tune with layers of percussion and great strong vocals from lead James Graham.

The title track is a four minute instrumental track full of distortion and juxtaposed melodies that create a dynamic piece on the album.

Then there’s tracks like ‘I Am Taking the Train Home’; an outstanding piece of music in terms of direction. The shape this song develops and moulds into is exciting and as Graham’s distinctive Scottish vocals carry the melodic noise and belting drums into a soft fade out at the end, it almost leaves you feeling like this song has been a delicate ride; a triumph in itself.

Volcanic distortion and prominent percussion remain thematic throughout the album, and tracks like ‘And She Would Darken the Memory’ leave dark and emotional crevices as it embarks on a flurry of noise in the closing minute- all drums and guitars marrying one another in a confused glaze of passion.

It’s almost a crime an album like this hasn’t been available on vinyl for over a year. What a special hour that will be at home on the record player when it finally hits special Record Store Day stores in April.
