Slow Down

lean in, call up that feeling
you get when you're stealing, that all too revealing side of you
Feeling a little reflective tonight, so here are three versions of The Twilight Singers' "Candy Cane Crawl" off Powder Burns (2006). The first is the album version featuring Afghan Whigs' bassist John Curley and the always amazing Ani DiFranco, followed by two live versions. The first live track was recorded in November 2006 with the full band and is bookended by a cover of The Band's epic "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down." The final track is a stripped down version recorded live at The Triple Door in Seattle on Oct. 4.

If you haven't listened to any of Greg Dulli's material, you are really missing something extraordinary. Few can match Dulli's ability to capture the frailties of human nature in both light and dark.
