In House #1622: Gomez in Park City Tonight; New Twilight Singers, Sam Roberts
Touring in support of their latest release, How We Operate, Gomez hits Club Suede in Park City, UT tonight. After steadily moving away from the blues-inflected pop sound that established them, the band has made something of a return to form, a move that is no doubt responsible in part for making the new album their most talked about in a few years.
Also today, we highlight a couple of new releases out this week: the Twilight Singers' Powder Burns and Sam Roberts' Chemical City. The brainchild of former Afghan Whigs frontman Greg Dulli, the Twilight Singers originally began as an idea for a one-off release back in 1997. Three subsequent releases later, the band has become Dulli's principal act-- a fact indicated by the intensely personal content included on Powder Burns.

Sam Roberts' third release is Chemical City, the follow-up to the much-acclaimed We Were Born In a Flame. The latest is being hailed as a solid classic-rock/power-pop hybrid ripe with both hooks and heady content. It seems reasonable to believe that we'll likely be hearing great work from Roberts for a long time to come.
