CD Review: The Whigs

Enjoy the Company (New West)

by

This Athens, Georgia, trio has been making records for about seven years now, but on Enjoy the Company, their fourth album, they finally pull together the warm mix of soulful garage-pop they've played around with from the start. On songs like the sprawling, horn-kissed opener "Staying Alive," "Summer Heat," and the stinging "Waiting," the Whigs come off like a more grounded My Morning Jacket, without the art-rock baggage.
