Order The Afghan Whigs'
New Album: In Spades

Powder Burns – Gigwise

Gigwise.com – by Mark Perlaki 3 Stars Having gone his own meandering way, Greg Dulli who cut loose from ‘Afghan Whigs’ some five years ago has netted this his fourth album under the name of ‘The Twilight Singers’. ‘Powder Burns’ comes across as a soundtrack for Harley-riding freeway music, without the helmet. Its free-spirited and affirmative, a particularly U.S. spangled version of alt-rock joined by back-up singers such as Joseph Arthur and Ani DiFranco, Greg with a voice at times most like The Verve’s Richard…

Powder Burns – Oregon Daily Emerald

DailyEmerald.com – By Matt Tiffany Greg Dulli, frontman for The Twilight Singers, has always had the special angst indie rockers need to give their music the edge that raises them above the Yellowcards of the world. With “Powder Burns,” Dulli’s inferno is complemented, and at times exacerbated, by the location of the album’s recording: New Orleans just two and a half months after Hurricane Katrina. In his online journal, Dulli wrote that the recording studio needed generators to keep the equipment running. When most bands…

Powder Burns – Filter

Filter Magazine – Spring ’06 – by Nevin Martnell Rating: 87% Seeing the Afghan Whigs on what turned out to be their last legs at the Bowery Ballroom on the 1965 tour was a religious experience. The band was in full abandon, backed up by a trio of soul singin’ sisters and a Columbia Records tab at the bar. By the end of the set, lead singer Greg Dulli was leaning punch-drunk on the mic stand, sweat pouring through his black suit with hair akimbo….

Powder Burns – Montreal Mirror

Montreal Mirror 8.5/10 – Johnson Cummins Long after the Afghan Whigs called it a day, head honcho Greg Dulli makes up for lost time, and proves he can still croon out a perfect line. His previous band’s foray into mutant R&B is now galvanized on “Forty Dollars,” with a grand piano leading the charge. On “Candy Cane Crawl,” he dyes the grey around his temples and spills his guts while attempting to hold demons at bay. Once again, Dulli knows how to work his fairly…

Powder Burns – RIFTrock

RIFTrock – Ben Thompson 7.5/10 I’ve believed for quite some time that Greg Dulli is one of the most underrated songwriters of this era. His work with the Afghan Whigs is unquestionably influential in most of the indie rock scene today. The first two Twilight Singers discs jumped right out and showed a more melodic side of Dulli (much like the Whigs’ 1965). Well, Dulli is back again. This time it’s Powder Burns. It’s not as immediately effective as Twilight or Blackberry Belle in that…

Powder Burns – Rock City

Rock-City.co.uk 4 Stars Why oh why is Greg Dulli not a household name? He should be; Afghan Whigs are one of the most underrated bands in modern times; and Dulli is a charismatic frontman with a powerful soulful vocal delivery; on the fourth Twilight Singers album, a whole heap of guest vocalists and performers have been roped in to help out. Of particular note is cult folkie Ani DiFranco whose vocals perfectly compliment Dulli on ‘Bonnie Brae’ and the albums title track ‘Powder Burns’. Elsewhere…

Powder Burns – Rock Midgets

New Releases News & Reviews Powder Burns has a lot of ground to make up. After leaving it to sit on the shelf for five years, Greg Dulli finally decided to release the stripped down, sparse Amber Headlights under his own name earlier this year. Overly short and feeling half finished, it left both fans and critics disappointed in the former Afghan Whig. With that frustrating record behind him by mere months, the time has come to release his fourth album under the guise of…
