Download of the Week: Don’t Get Into It by Whipping Wind

Whipping WindThe Whipping Wind, lovingly nurtured by lead man Andrew James, is a collection of unabashedly truthful tunes slyly hidden under the guise of grunge rock. Pop melodies abound in the new-this-year EPs, “Long Straws,” a 4-song onslaught of emotionally charged, full-band rock songs released on vinyl and “So Sore,” showcasing a one man, lo-fi, dance-rock band in 6-tracks.

Even so, it’s not unlikely to find James busking with a backing track in downtown London, playing the part of the crooner and breaking young girls hearts with a smile.
