about

Last Fall The Twilight Sad released their much-lauded return to form Nobody Wants To Be Here and Nobody Wants to Leave. The album was a bracing, widescreen encapsulation of everything that fans have come to love and expect from the band. And while the album was a dense and dark aural journey, the songs at the heart of the album were as raw and honest as ever, buoyed by James Graham’s audacious burr and his equally brittle and cutting lyrics.

It’s those lyrics and songwriting that come to the forefront on The Oran Mor Sessions. Captured live at Glasgow’s infamous Oran Mor, a converted 19th century church, by the band’s longtime live engineer Andrew Bush, these versions strip away the sonic fury to leave the songs vulnerable in acoustic arrangements that highlight the quiet beauty that lies beneath Twilight Sad records. The result is a new look at the songs that made up Nobody Wants To Be Here and Nobody Wants To Leave paired with an emotional cover of Arthur Russell’s classic “I Couldn’t’ Say It To Your Face. The session becomes an invaluable companion piece to their latest album and an essential entry to the catalog in its own right.
