Powder Burns – Floridian
Why we care: We’re fascinated by the sleazy side of celebrity, especially the high-heeled, low-gutter debauchery of the young and the reckless. And no one better captures the sweet-sour vibe of excess and addiction than chain-smoking Twilighter Greg Dulli, who splits his time between this side project and alt-rock band the Afghan Whigs.
Why we like it: Dulli has always been torn between punk anger and pop smarts, end-credit grandiosity and hungover quiet. With the Twilight Singers, he indulges all his musical skills. This disc was recorded in New Orleans, a town that knows about sin and salvation.
Reminds us of: Wild nights, hard mornings.
