Best album by Dulli hands down..

one year passes...
I was never that much into the Whigs, something about the tinny production always annoyed me, but heard a Twilight Singers song once on the radio, which sounded pleasantly husky and mysterious.
Where should I start?

If you're not into the Whigs, start with Twilight As Played By The... - very much a deliberate departure from the rock/soul mode, half recorded with Happy Chichester & Shawn Smith, then finished with Fila Brazilia after a falling out.

"tinny production" + Afghan Whigs? Were you listening to 20th generation dubs on beat up cassette tapes? The major label albums, at least, have a really warm low end.

Anyway, new Twilight Singers album just leaked. Haven't listened yet.

FYI, if you preorder it on subpop.com you get to hear a stream of the album. The leak is someone's recording of that stream.

Can't wait to hear this, I think I"m the only person alive who likes Twilight Singers more than the Afghan Whigs.

i wouldn't go that far, but my fav. album by either band is probably Blackberry Belle

I just hope it's more crooning r&b then him trying to rock out.

I only hope there's nothing on there about vampires.

he has kind of overplayed that card

it's sort of paced like blackberry belle, by which i mean: excellently. i think a lot of effort was put into the sound of this thing, which, dulli knows how to carry a mood, definitely, but sonically this record is a terrifying dark current. don't really know what i'm trying to say. still in awe.

Brad Nelson (BradNelson), Saturday, 22 January 2011 23:17 (eight years ago) link

yesssssss i am so pumped for this!!!

ilxor, Sunday, 23 January 2011 02:13 (eight years ago) link

i thought the gutter twins album was monstrous, so

This is some good shit, liking it more and more with each listen.

Blackberry Belle is the best thing in the world to me today, such a wonderful shoegaze soul sound that doesn't sound like anything else at all

gentlemen -> black love -> twilight/1965 -> blackberry belle is a hell of a run

"teenage wristband" is a perfect song
