A Stich in Time – Daily Copper

Greg Dulli’s Twilight Singers project features two guest vocalists on its latest EP release, A Stitch in Time. Mark Lanegan lends a dark intensity and rhythmic vitality to the mysterious ballad “Live with Me” and the loping mid tempo rocker, with an oh-so-tasty bass line, “Flashback.” The highlight of the disc is “Sublime,” which features Joseph Arthur. The song mirrors the finely layered arranging touches found on Arthur’s solo albums, with soaring guitars, a soulfully sung verse, and stacked vocals on a memorable chorus. The…

A Stitch in Time – TransformOnline

TransformOnline By Tim Den If you haven’t already learned such a simple fact, A Stitch in Time is here to remind you again: don’t ever doubt Greg Dulli. Everything he touches is priceless, no exceptions. Even this, an EP composed of two covers and three collaborations, is every bit as necessary as the masterpiece that is Powder Burns. FUCK, someone buy me life insurance before my heart explodes. Opening with a cover of Massive Attack’s recent newbie “Live With Me,” Dulli’s penchant for tackling surprising…

A Stitch In Time – Fuzznut

Fuzznut.net: 8/10 Greg Dulli’s Twilight Singers, not content with one well-received album this year, have returned with a five-track EP, Stitch in Time. While Dulli is an undeniable show-off, on this record, the limelight is very much shared with other musicians. The EP kicks off with a cover of Massive Attack’s Live With Me, featuring Mark Lanegan (see Screaming Trees, Queens of the Stone Age, Mark Lanegan Band) on lead vocals. It’s Lanegan’s deep, dark baritone that turns this song into either a truly passionate,…

A Stich in Time – Norwalk Advocate

CD review: “A Stitch in Time” by The Twilight Singers – The Advocate By Ray Hogan The EP, “A Stitch in Time,” in stores Tuesday, is another stellar effort from Greg Dulli’s Twilight Singers, a place for Dulli to write and perform with some of his favored musicians that dates back to his days as an Afghan Whig. This five-song is also a tease for Dulli’s The Gutter Twins disc with former Screaming Trees singer Mark Lanegan next year. To say their collaboration on Massive…

A Stich in Time – Big Cheese

4 Stars After their recent collaborative UK tour together, Mark Lanegan hooks up with The Twilight Singers for this haunting blues soaked EP. Including covers of Massive Attack’s ‘Live with Me’ and New Zealand’s Fat Freddy’s Drop song ‘Flashback’, this is another confirmation of former Afghan Whigs mainman Greg Dulli’s resurgence as simply a writer of beautiful music. It’s good to have both these survivors of the early ’90s grunge scene back. El Prez

A Stich in Time – Austin 360

Austin360.com 3 Stars This is exactly why God invented the EP. Five songs, 23 minutes, a quick hit glimpse into the mind and id of lead Singer Greg Dulli. He’s always had good taste in both cover songs (consult various Afghan Whigs live bootlegs for evidence) and pals (his whole discography is filled with well-selected guests). Longtime on-and-off collaborator Mark Lanegan — he of the baritone even more whiskey-soaked than Dulli’s croon — takes lead vocals on the slow-burn bedroom rock cover of Massive Attack’s…

A Stich in Time – Junkmedia

Junkmedia – 4/5 Greg Dulli is one prolific mother. And for someone as compelled as Dulli to keep pushing out content – most of it good – he’s amazingly willing to share the spotlight. Not only does he gleefully cover songs from every genre of pop music, but he doesn’t always have to be the focal point of the band. Exhibit A: Stitch in Time, the still iTunes-only EP that will get its proper release December 4 on British label One Little Indian Records. Stitch…

A Stitch in Time – Prefixmag

[prefixmag review] By: John Zeiss 6.0 / 10 Seemingly every generation of rock has its iron-man survivor who’s the exception to the “better to burn out than fade away” rule. The granddaddy of this motley crew is of course Keif, who can’t be slayed by mountains of drugs or plunges from palm trees. Neil Young probably did enough heroin to kill ten men but is somehow still around. Out of the ’90s, a decade that saw a sad list of musicians felled by substance abuse,…

A Stitch in Time – Manchester Evening News

Manchester Evening News – 3/5 Stephen Gilliver COLLUSION between Screaming Tree main man and utility guest vocalist Mark Lanegan and Afghan Whig Greg Dulli began three years ago, when the latter contributed backing vocals to a couple of tracks on the former’s Here Comes that Weird Chill EP. Returning the favour, Lanegan has been touring with Dulli’s current outfit the Twilight Singers ever since the two shared a stage during a Hurricane Katrina benefit. Here he wheels his voice into action on the lead tune…

A Stitch in Time – Powpowpow

powpowpow.com It’s perhaps a good thing that I have little knowledge of Mark Lanegan, The Screaming Trees, Joseph Arthur, Greg Dulli, Afghan Whigs or indeed The Twilight Singers all of whom, or rather members of all of whom, have played a part in the creation of this record. Such a weight of history would only confuse matters. Instead I’m left with the far easier task of reviewing five songs. And even better they’re all pretty good. A Stitch in Time is deep and dark and…
