Juli Thanki praised Whitmore’s 2009 album Animals in the Dark and we gave it a 7. “Animals in the Dark is Whitmore’s most political album to date, with several songs referencing the troubles facing this country, a problem which Whitmore blames on authority figures who abuse their power… The album’s title comes from ‘Old Devils’, the strongest song on an album full of strong songs. Who are the old devils? Whitmore calls them, ‘Those animals in the dark / Malicious politicians with nefarious schemes / Charlatans and crooked cops.’” Whitmore recently stopped by Later…with Jools Holland for powerful performance of “Old Devils”. Plus, here’s a recent performance of “Who Stole the Soul”. Tour dates after the jump.
