The Whigs

Three piece Athens, Georgia band The Whigs derive from southern rock to sixties pop. Comprising of soothing tones and powerful notes found on their debut album "Give 'Em All A Big Fat Lip", The Whigs prior to this played at college shows and opened for bands such as Elf Power, The Futureheads and so forth. Recorded themselves at Ross Crane House, an old historical site, Give 'Em All A Big Fat Lip is an enjoyable, sweet and lush melancholic piece. Think of Pedro The Lion, but more bright and catchy or even our favourites My Morning Jacket, hence the blog name. Although the album was first released in 2005, Australian label Ivy League have recently taken them under their wing and joined the family of artists like Red Riders, Youth Group, Josh Pyke etc. Give 'Em All A Big Fat Lip will be released in Australia on April 21st.
