New Afghan Whigs: "See and Don't See" MP3

Publish date:
Updated on

Cincinnati’s favorite soul-influenced alt-rock band Afghan Whigs just reunited, and now they’re sharing their first recorded music in five years. Let’s get the bad news out of the way first – it’s not original material. That’s the only bad news, though: the band’s cover of classic soul diva Marie “Queenie” Lyons’ “See and Don’t See” is absolutely excellent. Frontman Greg Dulli’s voice and tender acoustic guitar are truly, hauntingly devastating as he reckons his way around Lyons’ existential lyrics: “If I ever face reality, that’ll be the end of me.” The band kick off a reunion tour with an appearance on Jimmy Fallon May 22 – stay tuned to see if they release any new music.
