Mark Lanegan Band - Gargoyle

Record of the week is Gargoyle, the new LP from Mark Lanegan.

Man! He's been doing some amazing work recently with long drawn out subtlety, but Gargoyle is like a thump... it's euphoric and pounding, but not necessarily always happy, there is some menace. As ever, his vocal is another level.

Bleak or bleakly funny, Lanegan is in the form of his career.
