The Twighlight Singers are a band I follow less than I should. Gregg Dulli, from the Afghan Whigs leads the band (and I'm a huge fan of the Afghan Whigs). The band's new album, Dynamite Steps, is another strong effort, and features a song called "On the Corner."
This song sounds very much like some classic Afghan Whigs work - it is dark, starts quiet and gets loud, and features some strong violins in the background. And Dulli shrieks and yells like it was 1992 again - just awesome! Great guitar solo in the center of the song, along with some catchy semi-choruses.
It's what rock and alternative rock should've become (not the main-stream emo-crap that has hijacked the airwaves ... I'll get off my soap-box now!).
