Before replying please take a minute to review the companion post to determine which band we would rather play in and/or tour with: MGMT or The Whigs??
I was just about to comment on a Warp Records blog post over at the RCRD LBL site- http://tinyurl.com/2hd7ue -titled Battles vs. 2007, which I think is super dope to begin with but as I started typing I realized the last time I was leaving a comment over there relating to whether Battles’ “Mirrored” was the record of the year in 2007 (for the record: I’m a fan…) I wondered whether anybody had seen it and whether they were like me and could go either way in arguing that if I was Hank Sullivant I would rather play with MGMT (who I have been talking up for 5 or 6 months: http://tinyurl.com/3ym45g ) or The Whigs (if you Google image search for The Whigs you’ll find a few pics of the band from SXSW ’07 playing our space http://tinyurl.com/2lhzcd and a pic of the back of my head in the right foreground http://static.flickr.com/…62ab18.jpg from their Merc Lounge performance at CMJ ’06)
So I figured, why not ask this question on Utterz, play a single from each band and, by way of people replying to 1 of the 2 with either MGMT or The Whigs as their choice, determine which band we’d rather play with should we be musician Hank Sullivant (he has…).
