Soulsavers: Broken Out Today
Mark Lanegan has rejoined the UK band Soulsavers for their new album, Broken. Their last collaboration, It’s Not How Far You Fall, It’s The Way You Land includes the song “Revival” – one of my favorite songs of the last 10 years.
The record is getting great reviews.
A veritable Dante’s Inferno of an album, ‘Broken’ seethes with laconic fury, bittersweet jealousy and self-indulgence, ponders on loss, grief and redemption and aches with love’s labours lost; it’s a record that speaks of dissonance and despondency and as such is instantaneously engrossing and comforting.
The band (including Lanegan) will begin a US tour in September.
