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.

The Twilight Sad, We Were Promised Jetpacks and Holy Mountain

Kilsyth trio taking their former wall-of-sound noise rock in a new, darker synth-laden direction on their current album No One Can Ever Know. With alternarock support from WWPJ and mighty riffola from Holy Mountain.
