The Twilight Singers Are Your Baby Daddy
Why didn’t anyone tell me about these guys? Greg Dulli, the guy on the left: you know, the chock-full-of-innuendo chanteur for The Afghan Whigs (who are, in my estimation, one of the best pop/rock bands of my generation) started this band up. And so far in the 5 tracks I’ve listened to do a good job of picking up where the Whigs left off. There’s a little more rock where there was formerly more of a coked-up motown groove. Don’t get me wrong, they’ve still got a lot of that R&B soul- especially for a white dude – but I imagine you’d see a higher ratio heads banging than hips swaying at a Twilight Singers show vs. an Afghan Whigs show.
Straight-forward, no bullshit rock for the sake of sex, drugs, and rock and roll (emphasis on the sex).
