WMSE Song of the Day: Dynamite Steps by The Twilight Singers

Twilight Singers have  been on hiatus since 2006’s epic Powder Burns, and in continued epic-style, Sub Pop re-introduces the band fronted by Greg Dulli: “‘Whenever you’re here, you’re alive” are the first words sung on Dynamite Steps, the fifth album from Greg Dulli’s Twilight Singers collective…the group’s first in five years…Dynamite Steps is clearly the next chapter, a whole new level of catharsis and progress, evocatively cramming all the highs and lows of the maverick singer-songwriter’s past half-decade into unexpected sonic trapdoors.”  And as one commenter on the Sub Pop site so sublimely put it, “What is salvation? Streaming Dynamite while the wife and kids are in the other room mainlining American Idol“. Deal. We’re sold. Check out the title track, above and keep your ears perked for news on the band’s forthcoming tour to the Midwest, with stops in Chicago and Minneapolis in May.
