Inspired by some stripped-down live sets they played, the Twilight Sad get radically gentle on Here, It Never Snowed. Afterwards It Did. Atmosphere was already one of the strong suits of their debut album, Fourteen Autumns & Fifteen Winters, but the Twilight Sad master it on this EP, making these versions of songs from that album strikingly different from, but just as powerful as, the originals. The mammoth drums and searing guitars that made Fourteen Autumns & Fifteen Winters such a visceral listen are largely replaced by fan organ, glockenspiel, and percussion, and while the results don't sound "unplugged," exactly, they have a unique purity.
