The Twilight Singers

Dynamite Steps

Sub Pop SP844, released February 2011

The long-awaited Dynamite Steps...the first Twilight Singers album in five years when it was released. In 2011, it was weird to see new Dulli releases on Sub Pop. Who knew that there would be multiple new Afghan Whigs Sub Pop albums after this?

The vinyl version is a double LP for no apparent's a 43 minute album. As the story goes, it was only intended to be available on white vinyl. Somewhere along the way, when the album was being re-pressed, word from Sub Pop is that someone made a mistake and cranked out a black vinyl batch. These are much harder to come by than the white vinyl versions, but there are enough available that the prices have remained low. The black vinyl version is one that I could see rising over time, though.
