One of Athens, Georgia's newest dears, the Whigs have a new album called Mission Control out now. This interview is from NPR. The band discusses the new album and naming themselves, among other things. They will be on Letterman tomorrow night. The album was still streaming at Spinner when this was typed, but it probably will fall off tonight, unless they run it again this week. They play at the Music Hall of Williamsburg on February 1.
