I guess it was a sign that while having lunch with co-workers at a newish (well, new to me) cafe one day last week, the Twilight Sad was playing over the speakers in the restaurant (compliments to the playlist maker).
Just the previous week, I had been jotting down my favorite albums of the year, and I completely forgot about Fourteen Autumns & Fifteen Winters, which seems fitting considering one of the main themes of the album centers on disaffection and alienation.
Seattle’s KEXP hosted the Scottish quartet for a studio session during KEXP’s live broadcasts from Chicago. I missed the band when it came through Phoenix a couple months ago, so I’m glad to have some semblance of a live set, including the fairly epic Cold Days from the Birdhouse.
