The new Whigs record comes out next week but if you can't wait that long, head over to Myspace, where the whole thing is streaming (here). Pretty interesting (and gracious) move when you consider the band also provided three of the record's eleven tracks as free downloads. Standouts from a quick first listen are "So Lonely," "Automatic," "In the Dark," and "Kill Me Carolyne;" lots of good hooks and as usual with drummer Julian Dorio, a strong backbeat. Lyrically, lead singer/guitarist Parker Gispert seems to be have women and their form on his mind a lot (this could prove just metaphor until closer listening of course).
In the Dark drops 3/16, and preorders are available here.
