Soulsavers – Broken (7/10)

Sometimes the relationships that end up working are the ones you least expect to. That certainly seems the case with Soulsavers, an unlikely collaboration between two LA-based UK dance producers and former Screaming Trees front-man Mark Lanegan, who seem to be going from strength to strength.

Broken, their third proper album is once again dominated by Lanegan’s deep deep voice and a maudlin, country-gothic vibe (the Will Oldham-penned You Will Miss Me When I Burn sets the tone). Think Tom Waits or Tindersticks with lush ProTools production. Spritualized’s Jason Pierce is roped in for support.
