Twilight Singers: Powder Burns

Former Afghan Whigs front man Greg Dulli is back with fourth album from his latest band Twilight Singers. Since the last great Whigs album ‘1965’, Dulli’s output has been decidedly mixed until the self-titled Twilight Singers record arrived to little fanfare but started to make waves just because it was so incredibly lush and musically brilliant. On this new record the sound is very similar with the Singers making no great change in musical direction. But once again it’s the song writing that puts this album up there with the best of Dulli’s work. With a little help from my favourite Joseph Arthur on several tracks and Ani Difranco on a couple more it has a slightly different feel to previous outings, but not in a bad way, both here only serve to enhance the overall sound which again is subtle and beautiful. A great album for fans old and new and maybe the one that will catapult them to mainstream success.
