This is definitely one of those indie dominating weeks, with new releases from the likes of [tag]Cat Power[/tag], [tag]Dengue Fever[/tag], [tag]The Whigs[/tag] or [tag]Get Set Go[/tag]. Some highlights include Charlyn Marshall’s (Cat Power) “Jukebox,” her second cover album, filled with great renditions of such classics as James Brows, Frank Sinatra, Bob Dylan or Lee Clayton, as well as Athens, Georgia garage rock trio [tag]The Whigs[/tag] and their sophomore release Mission Control. This latest album from the southerners is definitely a more then worthy follow up, to their critically acclaimed debut and I believe it would do well to catapult these guys on to most radars.
Cat Power: Jukebox
The Whigs: Mission Control
