Powder Burns – The Sun
Grunge survivor Greg Dulli sings “I’ve come a long way” on the menacing “My Time (Has Come).”
Too right. Listening to this intense, personal affair, you sense a man who has lived on the darker edes of existence but still keeps a fire burning in his soul.
This is the fourth album under his Twilight Singers guise by the former Afghan Whigs frontman.
It’s a brooding success, cut through with raging guitars (I’m Ready) and moments of quiet reflection (The Conversation).
Watch out for superior guest appearnces by acclaimed singers Ani DiFranco and Joseph Arthur.
Both bring rich vocal textures to the likes of Bonnie Brae and Forty Dollars.
Time to enter the Twilight zone.
