MUSIC: White Whale (Update)

Just got word through the excellent new blog Heavy Metal Mouth that Merge is taking pre-orders for White Whales debut album (WWI). Preorder here, I don't imagine that you'll be disappointed. There's a couple good write-ups on the promo materials and pre-released tracks up on Good Hodgkins and My Old Kentucky Blog (although Dodge doesn't answer the question: Who would win in a fight? Superman or a White Whale? That was kind of disappointing.)

All in all, I'm pretty excited about this album. Here are the four tracks that've been plastered across the internet over the last couple months.

::: White Whale - The Admiral [personal favorite]
::: White Whale - Nine Good Fingers
::: White Whale - What's An Ocean For?
::: White Whale - We're Just Temporary, Ma'am
