This tribute album features some big names alongside lesser known artists. Capturing the early, frenzied melodies from album Up in It, Sweden’s Sounds Like Violence do a rapturous version of Sammy. Mark Lanegan adds an even…

Moby Compared to Afghan Whigs (?)

Haven’t heard the track, but I have to say that I never thought I’d see these two together. From Moby – Wait for Me Review at allmusic Dominated by instrumentals, “Shot in the Back of the Head” is the most evocative of the bunch, seemingly pulled from an unreleased David Lynch film scored by the Afghan Whigs circa Gentlemen — a lament from a dustbowl, full of mournful slide guitar and dewy electric piano. thx Dylan

The Obligatory Michael Jackson Post

By now, everyone knows that Michael Jackson has left the building. Regardless of what you thought about his off-stage behavior, the man was a genius when writing, performing and recording music. In a 2004 interview, Greg Dulli had this to say about the gloved one: LP: Spin and Rolling Stone are doing their 10 year Kurt Cobain remembrance issues. How do you see the change in music culture since he died? GD: Kurt Cobain was a friend of mine. We were on the same label…

Summer’s Kiss: A Tribute to the Afghan Whigs Available Now

It’s been three years and two days since we first announced the project, and I cannot be happier to say that Summer’s Kiss: A Tribute to the Afghan Whigs is available right now. The question I get most often is “why did it take so long to release”? The short answer is that we had a huge learning curve and were very naive about many, many things. That being said, this album could not have happened without the support of the artists involved, their managers…

Sonic Dissonance – Afghan Whigs Tribute Review

Sonic Dissonance Rating: 4/5 When I first got my hands on Summer’s Kiss, the new tribute album to the Afghan Whigs, I truly felt like a kid with free reign in a candy store. Thirteen songs and I knew how each of them originally sounded. But getting to hear other bands’ takes on the Afghan Whigs just made me giddy. The only problem was where to start? “Retarded?” “66?” “Uptown Again?” Such a difficult choice that the only answer that felt right was at the…
