Watch Usher Join Afghan Whigs At SXSW

We'll have more on this when we post our SXSW roundup for last night, since your entire Stereogum staff was on hand for it, but something strange and amazing happened last night at the FADER Fort.

Afghan Whigs – “Lovecrimes (Frank Ocean Cover)”

Cincinnati indie-soul gods Afghan Whigs have been covering Frank Ocean's "Lovecrimes" since the launch of their triumphant reunion tour, but considering the week Ocean just had, it's not exactly bad timing for the Whigs to deliver a studio version.

The Afghan Whigs’ 13 Most Vicious Songs

Greg Dulli is the quintessential wounded animal-as-frontman. Across six albums and a handful of stellar EPs throughout the better part of the '90s, Dulli and the Afghan Whigs left a swath of emotional and sexual destruction. Their early Sub Pop records were as raw lyrically as they were sonically, with a careful mix of confrontational… More »

Louis C.K., The Roots, The Make-Up To Play ATP’s I’ll Be Your Mirror New Jersey

You know who doesn't play a whole lot of rock festivals? Louis C.K., that's fucking who. In fact, the general-consensus greatest comedian in the world today never plays music festivals, presumably because he doesn't have to. And yet he's a new addition to the bill at ATP's I'll Be Your Mirror New Jersey festival,… More »

Greg Dulli Covers Leonard Cohen

Greg Dulli, the once and future leader of the Afghan Whigs, is a man who knows a few things about whiskey-soaked baritones and libertine poetics, so he's the kind of guy you'd want to hear covering a Leonard Cohen song.

Afghan Whigs Reunite For ATP

Back in the day, Greg Dulli's wailing soul-rock band the Afghan Whigs lent a much-needed air of sex and danger to an alt-rock era dominated by Seattle-style self-flagellating. The band broke up in 2001, but next year, they'll get back together to headline two big shows for All Tomorrow's Parties. More »

The Twilight Singers – “On The Corner”

"Blackbird And The Fox," the first single from the Twilight Singers's fifth album Dynamite Steps, featured Greg Dulli and Ani DiFranco in a slow-burn duet.

Mark Lanegan Covers Afghan Whigs

Lanegan does a properly slow, soulful, kind of blue take of one of his Gutter Twin's classic Congregation songs "Tonight." His go at the 1992 come-on's from the forthcoming Summer's Kiss: A Tribute To The Afghan Whigs, which includes a baker's dozen of Whigs takes via Joseph Arthur, My Jerusalem, Zykos, etc. The idea for… More »

Greg Dulli & Mark Lanegan Talk Internet Music Writing And “Snarky Hipsterism”

In an interview with Pitchfork today, alt-rock heroes Greg and Mark spend some time talking about the genre-sweeping stable of artists at Sub Pop, often home to the both crooners' endeavors, with and sans bands, and now place of residence for the duo's rather kick-ass Gutter Twins project. Dulli takes the lead here, confessing… More »
