Gig Preview: The Unwinding Hours – The Twilight Sad – RM Hubbert


Coming up in October is a gig that looks to be a little bit special.

Back in February The Unwinding Hours released their debut album, and with it made sure that the bar for the end of year “Best of 2010″ lists would be set high. Now they are planning a bit of a break to work on a follow up, but not before playing a few gigs.
Joining The Unwinding Hours on their last Glasgow show for a while is the wonderful RM Hubbert. Not to be outdone Hubby released a pretty excellent album himself this year in First & Last. More recently both joined forces to record a cover version of Sparklehorse’s Spirit Ditch. You can hear the gorgeous results below.

Rounding out the bill are special guests The Twilight Sad, who will be performing an acoustic set. Last year’s Forget The Night Ahead album showed that the brilliance of their debut album was no fluke, with The Room in particular, released as a single earlier this year, standing out to me as my favourite thing they’ve done so far. Despite losing the services of bassist Craig Orzel in February The Twilight Sad have continued to travel the World rattling eardrums and going from strength to strength. New material is forthcoming too, with The Wrong Car EP set for release on September 27th.
So yeah, like I said, a little bit special.
The gig takes places on October 17th in the Oran Mor Auditorium, with tickets available here.
