Fourteen Autumns & Fifteen Winters is the debut album from The Twilight Sad, following close on the heels of their self-titled EP that was released late last year. The Twilight Sad basically have continued their overall sound on this release, with absolutely scorching, soaring guitars and noisy accordion and other effects, plus thick rhythm sections and more heavily Scottish accented-vocals. It seems a fairly basic combination, but the group keeps things interesting by twisting things up slightly. Opening track "Cold Days From The Birdhouse" kicks off the release with some droning noise and a repeated piano note while multiple layers of guitars melt together. Before you know it, the track has blasted forth with hammering drums and blistering guitars that pile into a squalling heap. It's there that "Talking With Fireworks / Here, It Never Snowed" arrives, and the massive-sounding song is easily one of the best things they've done to date. Opening with a wall of pure texture, the track breaks off into a quieter, more introspective section before again giving way to an even bigger and louder section, which they then repeat once more before ending with a quiet coda. It's all over in just over five minutes, but shows off the sheer breathtaking vistas they can reach when they're firing on all cylinders. Other than the closing, album-titled track, the other new songs on the release also show some promise, including the almost sing-along (for this group anyway) "Mapped By What Surrounds Them." Musically, they're doing what post rock groups have been doing for some time now, working the quiet/loud dynamic in hyper-dramatic ways, but it's the addition of the Glasgow burred vocals that add an element of humanity that really gives the group an edge. These youngsters sure do make a racket sound good.
