The Twilight Singers
Even amid the Afghan Whigs' Nirvana-sized funk-and-drone of the mid-'90s, singer Greg Dulli was like a beautiful smear across his songs—sensuous and vivid, yet free of the ingenious beat his band conjured. With the Twilight Singers' new and fifth album, Dynamite Steps, the lizard prince finds a quieter, no less perfect cabaret for his floating voice, evoking either Trent Reznor's hurt locker or Bono's woozy ecstasy, or both at once. Fellow New Orleanian Ani DiFranco drops by the album to mark the event, on a tune almost R.E.M.-soft, but it sounds no more like her than it does like anything else. With Margot & the Nuclear So and So's. 18+. (Photo by Sam Holden)
