I know I'm stretching the Whigs related news here...but bear with me.

Frequent Greg Dulli collaborator Petra Haden has joined The Decemberists. The violin-playing former member of That Dog and The Rentals has performed on the band's new album and will be joining them as a touring member as well.

The Decemberists became one of my favorites in 2004. They fall into what I lovingly call the genre of "Vocabulary Rock." If you like Neutral Milk Hotel (and who doesn't?), give them a listen.
