This Civil Twilight

This Civil Twilight


Angular, melodic rock music.


The members of This Civil Twilight have made music together since 1996. Our musical tastes are wide-ranging; enduring inflluences include the Archers of Loaf, Built to Spill, Sonic Youth, and Les Savy Fav. We've shared the stage with such acts as Whitey Houston, Slow Fresh Oil, Hot Little Rocket, The Cape May, The Weakerthans, and Modest Mouse. We hope our music, and our live shows, are absorbing in their intensity.


February 2006 -- "Every Bone, Every Cavity" (ep/independent)

November 2006 -- "Wolf Pack Days" (lp/independent)
