The Afghan Whigs newest single starts out with some post-punk funk guitar, momentarily gives you the impression it might veer into Beck territory for a millisecond, maybe a NIN song as it gets a bit sinister, but no, it's Afghan Whigs danger, not robotic ambience. Maybe an Eastern Camper Van influence darts in, maybe not, but then it's Afghan Whigsy again. Yes, a band can come back and be as good as before or better. Proof right here.
