The Twilight Sad - No One Can Ever Know: The Remixes
Reworkings by JD Twitch, Com Truise and Liars make this album far more than a novelty
Remix albums, by design, are a mixed bag. However, having been reimagined by capable friends in the past – Mogwai and Errors among others – The Twilight Sad have already demonstrated that their music can be manipulated, reinterpreted, even blatantly chopped up, and still possess much of the brilliantly dark and unsettling personality that has long-defined their strongest material.
Their third album, No One Can Ever Know, is more or less catered for such consensual butchery, with electronics becoming a much more prominent feature. Thanks to inspired mixes by JD Twitch, Com Truise and Liars, it's thankfully far more than a stop-gap novelty.
