SLY Review from Sweden

Where my Swedes at? → Revolver.nu Review Updated: Thanks to Mathias for letting me know that the review is about 50/50. Some love, some dislike. That’s in contrast to the Calgary Sun’s review, which is overwhelmingly positive. Be sure to give it a read. Excerpt: “…he (Dulli) turns in one of the best albums of his career and one of the best albums of the year.”

The Twilight Singers will be performing with Dios Malos (formerly dios) on their Philadelphia (10/13) and Cambridge (10/15) dates. Midnight Movies will join the band in Eugene on the 24th. Opening acts for the other dates are not known at this time.

Flickr: Twilight Singers Wallpaper

Just browsing through the stacks at Flickr, when I found this gem. I believe this was a promo from the original Columbia Twilight Singers site; but it’s been a long time since I’ve seen it. » Twilight Singers Wallpaper Click the “All Sizes” link for a suitable 1024 x 768 image. Also at Flickr, a cameraphone shot of Dulli from the August show in London.
