Can you smell what The Whiffs are cookin'? Hint: it’s not Phish, Meatloaf or a String Cheese Incident.
Nope – Kansas City’s prodigal sons of power pop are sticking to what they know on Another Whiff, their debut full-length for Dig! Records. Since 2017’s Take A Whiff EP, the band has been busy allowing their auditory aromas to ripen with the addition of Joey Rubbish (of The Rubs) for a fuller, more robust sonic bouquet. The album takes detours down lonelier roads in broken-hearted ballads from the heartland; on a journey forged by pioneers like Chilton and later Westerberg, the looming legacy of Petty and the cosmic country harmonies of The Byrds before them.
