Twilight Sad Are Back


Twilight Sad Are Back.

After a too long absence, the Twilight Sad have shared a new single, the curiously titled I/m Not Here [missing face].

It’s a driving, motorik return, with wailing guitars and swirling synths circling around frontman James Graham’s repeated declarations of “I don’t want to be around you anymore.”

It’s a fabulous return.

NEW VIDEO: The Dream Syndicate – “How Did I Find Myself Here” (feat. John Paul Jones)


NEW VIDEO: The Dream Syndicate – “How Did I Find Myself Here” (feat. John Paul Jones).

“Here’s a brand new video of a live version of “How Did I Find Myself Here” as performed with John Paul Jones at the Sun Station Vadso festival up in Norway exactly one year ago. Thanks to JPJ’s wild outer-space purple lap steel guitar explorations and the ensuing stringed interplay shenanigans, this version gets even freakier than the one that appeared on our studio album last year. Jason and John duke it out, toe to toe, fret to fret and no one gets out alive. Filmed and edited by Nick Edwards.”
