Twilight Singers unleash their alt-rock ego with no chains to hold it back in their bold and kinetic track, “On The Corner.” “Spread your legs/Insert your alibi” Dulli sings here, a line that captures his timeless essence: a turn of phrase both clever and vulgar, its truth hitting home all too painfully. Twilight Singers enlists the help Queens of the Stone Age/Eagles of Death Metal drummer Gene Trautmann to drive the point home with all his thundering boom. The guitars are dark and brooding, which act as an almost nostalgic reflection of 90s industrial gothic rock. Most importantly, the vocals soar above the instrumental arrangement like an alien mothership towering over an innocent city.
All of the effort has not gone unnoticed, as critics across the board rush to embrace the new Twilight Singers record, Dynamite Steps. Rolling Stone magazine says that the album is one that “no one can resist,” scoring it highly. SPIN magazine has also called the record Dulli’s “strongest, most widescreen set since the Whigs’ mid-’90s heyday” and gave it a top ranking score as well. Pitchfork, the popular and hard-to-please blog, has also claimed that Dynamite Steps is “Dulli’s best collection since Blackberry Belle, [an early Twilight Singers record] and part of what gives the album its impact is how precisely and dynamically the album has been sequenced.” The album has also been well received by many other blog websites, including the much read Stereogum. Twilight Singers have also received mainstream television buzz with their visit to Jimmy Kimmel Live and the upcoming performance of “On The Corner” on The Late Show with David Letterman on April 26th. Twilight singers are currently wrapping up their extensive world tour this April and heading out for a full United States run in May and lasting in June.
