The Twilight Sad: Never Tear Us Apart (INXS cover)

twilight sad

I’ve long pestered my brother about his band doing an INXS cover – preferably something off Welcome to Wherever You Are (such a good album) and preferably the song “Not Enough Time.”

Maybe that’ll happen in the future, but in the meantime The Twilight Sad is offering a dark, lo-fi version of the INXS song “Never Tear Us Apart,” from the equally excellent 1987 album Kick. It’s available as a free Christmas gift – inspired by its appearance on the soundtrack to Donnie Darko, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary – though the typically bleak and simmering emotions from these angry Scots will undoubtedly dampen your holiday spirits.

Head to the band’s site to send an e-card to that special mope in your life.
