Afghan Whigs singer Greg Dulli put together the first version of his Twilight Singers side project in New Orleans during a hiatus in his main band inthen put it aside when the Whigs signed to Columbia Records and made their label debut, By the time he returned to the Twilight Singers concept, he Pyranja - Reine Nervensache hooked up with the Hull, England, remix duo Fila Brazilliaand he proceeded to rethink it.
The result is really two albums in one. The first four tracks and the last two adhere to Dulli's original idea, which seems to have been to trade off on vocals with Harold Chichester and Shawn Smith on folk-ambient ballads set to trip-hop beats.
On these songs, the alternating singers echo some of the Band's early records, though their main inspiration seems to have been the throaty, half-spoken style of Bono on latter day U2 recordings. The Annie Mae - The Twilight Singers - Twilight As Played By The Twilight Singers of the album is given over to Dulli's collaborations with Fila Brazillia on more exotic dance tracks, some of which are more soundscapes than songs.
The latter recordings don't really have enough of a vocal emphasis to justify the Twilight Singers tag. Throughout, the lyrics are dominated by images of love and death.
Lead-off track "The Twilight Kid" sounds like a deathbed pronouncement to a loved one, for example, while "Love" contains the declaration, "I'd kill Annie Mae - The Twilight Singers - Twilight As Played By The Twilight Singers you. But Dulli can be both vague and pretentious in his lyric writing, and when he combines it with a mannered singing style, his points seem even more belabored.
