The Afghan Whigs are releasing their first album (Do To The Beast) in 16 years on April 14th. That’s exciting news already.
Even better, they already released a fantastic new song (“Algiers”) a few weeks ago with an atmospheric and anachronistic video, directed by Phil Harder, set in the Wild West – granted it’s a bit violent for my taste. But I love the scenery (and especially the band shots) because I love the Wild West and it reminds me of my new surroundings in Colorado.
Personally, I like the reference in the lyrics to “slave” – which reminds me of my favorite Afghan Whigs song: “My Curse”.
