Biography

“Whenever you’re here, you’re alive” are the first words sung on Dynamite Steps, the upcoming new album from Greg Dulli’s Twilight Singers collective. That line comes from the opening track, “Last Night in Town.” Commencing a record with that title is a ballsy gambit, but there’s a method to his madness. “Last Night in Town” serves ...

This is a great cd with explosive and a groove of melodic beats.

Once again, Dulli has created a masterpiece, nodding favorably to the rhythm and blues soul that continues to influence his music.

Even though Fila Brazilia collaborated on this album, it ain't no electronica album. Fila adds, as usual, the right subtle touch of funk and space to Dulli's funk and soul. Talk about unusual pairings, Dulli and Fila make an album that's worth taking home the best album of 2000 award. The sound is still unmistakably Afghan Whigs, but softer, more quiet and more optimistic than any Whigs' album. The Whigs are adept at creating anthems that perfectly describe an emotion. The same holds true on the Twilight album. Every song describes a fleeting moment in time, in human emotion. Hence the Twilight moniker. After my first listen, I almost cried. Goosebumps ran up and down my body. If there are any miracles in music, this is definitely one of them. Thank you Greg for making me feel like I'm never alone.

Ever so smooth, Greg Dulli's voice slinks around piano chords like vintage Marvin Gaye on the darkest of evenings. Once again, Dulli has created a masterpiece, nodding favorably to the rhythm and blues soul that continues to influence his music. This time around the music is mellower, though the emotions expressed mimic those of previous Whigs' albums. Nothing has changed lyrically: Dulli is the bastard in bed, watching the nameless girls crawl out of his room before dawn, watching the dirty videos he presumably filmed himself. He plays scapegoat, stalker, and victim and plays them all well. Plays us well. And in the end, a lustful lick on the cheek meets a deserving kick in the groin.
Holding out his hand, Dulli takes us to places existing in the small window of twilight, under the silver stars and moons on the album's cover, where hearts are broken in a jaded romanticism familiar to Whigs' fans. The emotions are powerful and far-reaching. Yet Dulli makes it work because when he speaks we believe him. Or at least we try. Hanging on every word, the brutal, jagged honesty oozes from his mouth in neatly written verse. Undoubtedly, this is the soundtrack to the night, as it complements those hours precisely.
Backed by New Orleans session players, and calling themselves the Twilight Singers, Dulli incorporates drum machines, ambient grooves, and subtle piano into the mix. Consequently, he eases off the trademark guitar riffs, which came to define the Whigs in the decade past. The swank is still apparent, however, possibly even more so, creeping through horn arrangements, lush melodies, and Dulli's swelling wails and whispers.

It seems that listeners don't understand that this album is NOT Greg Dulli, nor is it Fila Brazillia. It is an entirely new and synergistic beast, and this is why it is not called "Fila Brazillia plays Dulli" or something of the like. This is one of the few albums that I can listen to for hours upon hours, and this is entirely the result of experimentation, collective vision, and a superb analogy between lyric, instrumentation and production. Somehow, the Twilights are able to combine racking heartache and betrayal with appropriate bittersweetness to create a masterpiece of ephemera. I constantly feel after listening that I have lost something deep inside -- but found the marrow of myself nevertheless. Of the songs abounding in the soundtrack I play inside my head, tracks from Twilight invariably pop up out of the blue, and I find myself humming for hours. It's a truly complex album too -- I'm always finding a note here or there that I never noticed, without which the songs wouldn't quite be the same -- the hallmark of an excellent work. Quite frankly, this is a beautiful album of true and unfettered emotion -- the layering of sounds only serves to further amplify -- and the segues are fantastic, rivaling perhaps the second side of Abbey Road. The irony here is the album's ability to make you feel as if you're falling in love despite lyrics such as "tell me where you were." Again, a bittersweetness that always leaves me wanting more.

yeah, yeah, it's not the whigs. but neither was "1965", in my opinion.
this is greg dulli. a little happier, freed up from rock angst, liberated by a drum machine. the guilt that fueled dulli in the whigs days, at least up to "black love", seems to have dissipated. now he's all about getting it on.
i loved the whigs, and i love "twilight." yes, they are very different entities, but after hearing "1965" you had to know where dulli was heading with his next project.
overproduced? yeah. but who cares? this is lush, get-it-on music. i have a copy of "love" before the fila brazilia extreme makeover, and it's great, but the album version fits perfectly into the feel of the record. sure, this album is not perfect, "annie mae" falls a little flat for some reason. but all of the other songs are very good, with some greatness scattered into the mix.
and let's not forget shawn smith and happy chichester. are there any less appreciated guys in music today? these guys are amazing talents, but no one's heard of them. the three part harmonies between these guys are heartbreaking.
so go out and get the record. and get the new howling maggie, too.
