With the help of vocalist Mark Lanegan, Britain’s Soulsavers put together an album with Gibby Haynes of the Butthole Surfers, Mike Patton of Faith No More, and Martyn LeNoble of Porno for Pyros. But instead of a crappy update of ’90s alt-rock, Broken, released last month, features Haynes and company making dark, symphonic pop…. And they can conjure that same sort of sadness onstage, without the aid of a Macbook. —Mike Riggs
