New Album: In Spades

Powder Burns – Capeweek.com

capeweek.com 3 stars ”Bonnie Brae,” the strongest track on this CD, was recently featured on the FX network show ”Rescue Me.” Twilight Singers leader Greg Dulli made work that singed the soul with his previous group, the Afghan Whigs. The slower-burning angst of his present group is a perfect fit for the TV show about a crew of confused and tormented firefighters. Dulli always made heavy-sounding albums, but the destruction of New Orleans, his adopted hometown, explains why this is his most somber record yet.

Powder Burns – Winnipegsun.com

winnipegsun.com 4 stars When Greg Dulli says, “I’m alive — It kinda took me by surprise,” you know he’s not kidding. Or the only one surprised. One of rock’s most notorious and unrepentant users, the former Afghan Whigs frontman now says he’s finally cleaned up his act (though we still wouldn’t trust him with our house keys). Whatever the truth, it’s hard not to hear Powder Burns, the fourth album from his post-Whigs band The Twilight Singers, as a chronicle of his battle with addiction….

Powder Burns – TransformOnline

TransformOnline By Tim Den Wednesday. Jul 26, 12:03 AM Over-the-top purging, even for the King of Dark Rock. In a recent interview with The Onion, guitarist/vocalist Greg Dulli revealed that Powder Burns is the first album that he’s ever recorded stone sober. It’s unsurprising, then, that it bursts with all sorts of Technicolor, panoramic emotions and bombast: the kinds of over-the-top purging that perhaps his years of alcohol and drug abuse numbed and suppressed till now. So if you thought the clench-fisted soulfulness of Blackberry…

Powder Burns – Naples Daily News

Sound Salvation: Greg Dulli’s fine line | naplesnews.com | Naples Daily News Greg Dulli’s fine line By Jon Foerster Greg Dulli is something of a rock ‘n’ roll alchemist. One part spit and swagger, two parts wall of guitars and one part soul is the recipe he’s blended together countless times, first with the Afghan Whigs on songs such as “Debonair” and, for the past decade with the Twilight Singers. Like perhaps only the Rolling Stones before him, he manages to fine the right tension…

Powder Burns – The Sunday Paper

06/04/06 CD Reviews > The Sunday Paper > Music Archives It sounds ridiculous to say so, but Greg Dulli puts the sex and drugs into rock ‘n’ roll. Now, of course, these elements were always supposed to go hand in hand, but the indie-rock scene that birthed his old band, the Afghan Whigs, had serious reservations about many of big rock’s most cherished clichés. Dulli made his name by thumbing his nose at those conventions, behaving like an egomaniac and making records that never shied…

Powder Burns – FoundryMusic

FoundryMusic BANDS Review: POWDER BURNS 5 Stars This album came out in mid-May but didn’t make it to me until recently. Powder Burns is the new work of former AFGHAN WHIGS frontman Greg Dulli’s band, THE TWILIGHT SINGERS and it is phenomenal. It is everything I could expect from one of the most underrated musicians of our time. Most albums have high and low points, but Powder Burns only has high and higher points. The disc starts out with an instrumental track called “Through the…

Powder Burns – A.V. Club

The Twilight Singers | The A.V. Club Reviewed by Noel Murray June 7th, 2006 When Greg Dulli disbanded his sputtering alt-rock combo The Afghan Whigs at the turn of the millennium to concentrate on the lower-key electro-folk collective The Twilight Singers, the change played into a lot of his worst artistic instincts. At their best, The Afghan Whigs were raging and sultry, giving Dulli a chance to work out his loutish obsession with hedonism in big-sounding rock songs full of nail-biting drama. At their worst,…

Powder Burns – North Shore News

Welcome to the North Shore News – On Line – Arts & Entertainment Rating: 8/10 Greg Dulli dances with the devil one more time on Powder Burns – his best work since 1993’s Gentlemen. The former Afghan Whigs frontman recorded most of the album in New Orleans with his new band the Twilight Singers and producer Mike Napolitano (who has also worked with Joseph Arthur and the Meters). Dulli actually started the sessions before Hurricane Katrina dismantled the Gulf Coast last August and returned afterwards…

Powder Burns – 75 or Less

75 or Less album reviews. Greg Dulli lays down more of his rock/soul trademark sounds on all 12 tracks of Powder Burns. You aren’t hearing anything new on this record, but that’s not a big deal since Dulli’s been writing great songs since his Afghan Whigs days. There’s no shortage of good writing on his latest effort. “There’s Been An Accident” is haunting and beautiful, while “Bonnie Brae” is hands down one of the best songs Dulli has ever written. Guest spots are filled in…

Powder Burns – Calgary Sun

Delivering seduction Mike Bell Rating: 3.5/5 The older you get, the harder to seduce. And the less you attempt it. It’s just easier not to and the returns are usually less exciting. But what of the Seducer — the one whose life has been about the act, the conquest and the consequences? Well, the skills are still there, although now slightly dulled by time and repetition. And it takes a little longer to make them work — the seduction is no longer instantaneous and natural,…
