The Whigs – Mission Control

The latest release from The Whigs, “Mission Control” (1/22/08) features lead man Parker Disperts’ growling vocals over a alt-rock record that force feeds you hook after hook. Joined by producer Rob Schnapf (Beck, Elliot Smith) the group seems to hit all the right chords on a record that makes you excited about the capabilities the young trio has yet to harness. I was lucky enough to catch The Whigs open up for chicago favorite, The Redwalls, and these guys have an unbelievably full sound. When I walked in I heard a 6 piece band, but when I got a closer look, I saw there were only 3 guys on stage.

Highlights Include, “Like A Vibration”, “1,000 Wives”, “I Got Ideas”, and instant calssic “Right Hand On My Heart
