More on the Whigs

Scratch that "Southern Strokes" thing from yesterday ("Technology" does ape "Take It Or Leave It" though). If Parker Gispert was Britt Daniel, you would have already heard this:

The Whigs || Half the World Away (from Give 'Em All a Big Fat Lip)

I had the chance to give Give 'Em All a Big Fat Lip a listen last night and it has some pretty good parts. The middle gets a little same-y, but the two closing tracks and a couple of other stand-outs (see above) are really solid and show that the band has the potential to grow into its own style.

If they sound a little like Spoon in the meantime, that's not that bad either.
