My favorite alt.rock band of the 1990s was Afghan Whigs, who I knew growing up in Cincinnati, Ohio. After the Whigs split up, Greg Dulli formed the Twilight Singers to further his unholy union of the seductive rock, soul, and R&B influences that spawned him. The Twilight Singers' latest release, "Dynamite Steps," was released this week on Sub Pop, the original home to the Whigs. It's a record, Dulli says, that would be right at home on "70s AM radio." As usual with Dulli's projects, the album features a number of special guests, including his Gutter Twins collaborator Mark Lanegan, Ani DiFranco, The Verve's Nick McCabe, and Joseph Arthur. Above, the strange and compelling video for the first single, "On the Corner," directed by Michael Sterling Eaton. The Twilight Singers play a free concert at 6pm this evening, Thursday 2/17, at San Francisco's Amoeba Records before embarking on tour. The Twilight Singers
