When we first heard Whalebones, one of the first things we thought was that they would sound great making rough and intimate lo-fi acoustic songs. They must have been reading our minds, because just recently they hit us off with "The Beach," which, besides sounding like an empty beach on a grey morning, also has someone blowing on a jug in the background. If there's anything we've been missing in music it's jugs. We would normally make a suggestion that the band should release a lot more of these acoustic demos, but since we already know that they are going to, we're going to hold off and just wait patiently for that.
