Album Review: Mark Lanegan Band - Blues Funeral

Monday 20th February, 2012 11:59AM

It feels like a long wait since Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees) released his last solo album, Bubblegum. In that time however he has released three albums with Isobel Campbell from Bell & Sebastian, one with Greg Dulli (Twilight Singers, Afghan Whigs) as the Gutter Twins, as well as significant collaborations with UNKLE, Soulsavers, Queens of the Stone Age, and Twilight Singers. Let it never be said that the man is lazy. In fact restlessness seems to be a constant motif in Laneganís music. His tools of the trade have always been plaintive blues tempered between slabs of apocalyptic rock and this album is no exception. However for Blues Funeral Lanegan has added a new sound to his arsenal; garish swathes of goth and glam.
