A Stitch in Time – Gigwise

GIGWISE – 4/5 And so, the ghost of the late 80s/early 90s US alternative scene continues to make its malevolent presence felt in the midway through the current decade. Mark Lanegan, having put in a turn on Isobel Campbell’s Mercury-bothering album last year, is back here assisting fellow veteran Greg Dulli (ex-Afghan Whigs) and his band on covers of Massive Attack’s ‘Live With Me’ and Fat Freddy’s Drop’s ‘Flashback’. The whole EP soothes rather than threatens, with ‘The Lure Would Prove Too Much’ in particular…

A Stitch In Time – Twisted Ear

Twisted Ear – 4/5 When Mark Lanegan drawls his way through the dark, sleazy blues of Live With Me, the opening song on the Twilight Singers’ new EP A Stitch in Time, you just can’t resist. There’s something hackle-raising and sinister about the erstwhile Screaming Tree – his onstage gravitas, the shadowy gloom of his deep baritone, his troubled past – that makes him all the more compelling. He’s one of those people that you can’t take your eyes (well, ears) off, and this is…

A Stitch In Time – Angry Ape

AngryApe The grit and earthiness of the Screaming Trees that was expounded for the large part by Mark Lanegan along with Greg Dulli’s soul searching range of musical exploration, is largely responsible for waking rock music from its stale slumber in the late 80s. This is, for many, a much awaited collaboration. For opener ‘Live With Me’, Lanegan adds a twining ambient kick to Dulli’s latest project that already boasts an earthy country vocal base and an endearing achy vibe, to start this five track…

A Stitch in Time – Tasty

Single Reviews 2006 Now this is nice. Greg Dulli often frustrates me, cos he’s got so much talent, and he so obviously wastes it half the time. But this five track ep is just fine, thank you very much. Opening track, ‘Live With Me’ opens up all sultry, like, and then explodes into a meandering, powerful torch song. It’s pretty ace, y’know. ‘Sublime’ takes it down a notch or two, and could quite easily be a horrible mid-80s AOR track if it wasn’t for Dulli’s…

A Stitch in Time – Left of the Dial

Left of the Dial Magazine Mark Lanegan shows up yet again, this time visiting the songs of The Twilight Singers, with seductive loin-warmer, liquor and licorice brother Greg Dulli of the Afghan Wigs at the helm, though Lanegan (like on his earlier visitations on “Blackberry Belle”) seems to offer a full-throated, geyser-voiced approach on this outing compared to the minor miracle on the Baldwin Brothers album. In fact, Lanegan has joined them on the band’s fall tour. The dark and dreary “Live with Me” (a…

A Stitch In Time – Cleveland Scene

clevescene.com The Twilight Singers’ A Stitch in Time features two of the last decade’s great voices: ex-Afghan Whig Greg Dulli and former Screaming Trees frontman Mark Lanegan. And while Dulli steers the ship (more a rotating cast than an actual band), this EP sees Lanegan finally seizing more control. Transforming Massive Attack’s bluesy “Live With Me” into a menacing dirge, the mercurial singer delivers his most brooding performance since the Trees’ heyday back in the early ’90s. And on his radical reinterpretation of Fat Freddy…

A Stitch in Time – Red Alert

The Red Alert Sex still sells, of course, but rock hardly seems like its natural habitat anymore. Greg Dulli is one of the few indie-rock singers who has been able to consistently sing about sex through the years while 1) sounding like he’s actually talking from experience but 2) without coming off as some harmless jokester, creepy perv, or lame braggart. This reviewer can’t speak to the accuracy of point #1, but it seems pretty clear that one of the keys behind point #2 is…

A Stitch In Time – Drowned in Sound

Drowned in Sound: 8/10 Lianne Steinberg When Mark Lanegan joined Greg Dulli’s Twilight Singers on stage during their recent European tour, he would sheepishly peep out from beyond the backstage curtains before taking on a three-song collaboration mid-set. Fortunately, having the kind of gravitas you would expect from a man who isn’t known for his sense of humour, Lanegan managed to turn a cover of Massive Attack’s Live With Me into a driving slab of sleazy gutter rock. In fact, when he growls the hook…

A Stitch in Time – STV

STV Article by Charles McGarry This EP winds 2006 up nicely for the Twilight Singers. Following almost unanimous applause for their latest LP, the band encored by playing relentlessly for the second half of the year. Unsurprisingly, by the time they made it to Cabaret Voltaire with Mark Lanegan in tow over the summer they may have looked a bit knackered, but their show was nevertheless sublime. Featuring one Twilights track and four weighty collaborations with players such as the aforementioned Lanegan, Joseph Arthur and…

A Stitch In Time – Musicomh.com

A Stitch In Time EP : track review The Twilight Singers released one of the albums of the year back in May with the beautifully sombre Powder Burns. A Stitch In Time finds former Afghan Whig Greg Dulli sharing the vocal duties with Mark Lanegan, both of whom came to the fore during Grunge. If Kurt Cobain was the Grunge era’s punk voice, it found its Soul in Dulli and its Blues with Lanegan. A cover of the Massive Attack song Live With Me opens…
