I really like Dan Wilson and his former band Semisonic. However, I haven’t paid much attention to Dan’s brother, Matt Wilson. So, when I heard a song called Alone by Matt’s current band The Twilight Hours, I was impressed right away.
I’ve been enjoying Semisonic’s music already for a few years. It started from F.N.T., one of the grooviest songs I’ve ever heard. I also purchased Dan Wilson’s solo album Free Life some time ago. Many people already know that Matt Wilson founded a band called Trip Shakespeare back in the 80s and Dan also joined the band later. After Trip Shakespeare the brothers have had their own projects. I haven’t listened to Trip Shakespeare or those other Wilson bands/projects much yet so I guess I should do just that.
Listen to this song by the Twilight Hours and then get the album Stereo Night. This stuff is simply magical – very, very good songwriting with tender melodies and lovely, organic sounds. It is great to hear how much alike Matt and his brother are. Both have a plenty of talent, write great songs and sing soulfully. To cut a long story short, that is real beauty!
