New Music: The Whigs

It seems there might be some sort of classic rock revival in music this year so far. Bands like Marah, Black Mountain, Drive-By Truckers and now The Whigs have all released albums full of classic sounding rock n roll. The Whigs are (yet) another great band from Athens, Georgia and here is their video for the single 'Right Hand On My Heart':

Their second full length, Mission Control, is out now on ATO records. Although The Whigs tread familiar territory (think a mix of The Replacements and My Morning Jacket) not many bands could do what The Whigs do as a three-piece. They will be playing in Lawrence at The Granada on March 3rd.
