Mark Lanegan Band
All musicians aspire to create a mood with just a few notes, but few have succeeded quite like Mark Lanegan. Ever since his days with pre-grunge firebrands Screaming Trees (“Nearly Lost You”), his craggily voice need only hum and all the music around it seems shrouded in some dusky veil. Multiply that effect and you get some approximation of the pensive, singer-songwriter rock he creates in his own name, most recently on February’s excellent Blues Funeral. Now just imagine his stage persona.
