Watching That Chair Painted Yellow

The Twilight Sad came from out of nowhere earlier this year and have quickly become one of my favorite bands. I saw them three times at SXSW and was very impressed by all of their performances, and subsequently have seen them again post SXSW. Their first two releases The Twilight Sad EP and their full length debut 14 Autumns and 15 Winters (what a fantastic album title) have been on repeat play for most of the year. During the myriad of times that I've seen them live this year, the band has consistently played one song that was nowhere to be found on their official releases. The song in question is "Watching That Chair Painted Yellow" and it finally got an official release as a B-side on the That Summer, At Home I Had Become The Invisible Boy single. I've been meaning to put this one up for a while and have just forgotten. The single is now out of print, so here it is for all of you completists out there.

Also, in a bit of strange news that I guess, in hindsight, isn't really so strange, The Twilight Sad have announced that they will join the ranks of such bands as Deerhunter, The Black Angels, Explosions In The Sky, and others by opening for The Smashing Pumpkins this year. The Twilight Sad will open the Pumpkins show in Glasgow on the 22nd.
