The Afghan Whigs add tour dates, release Frank Ocean cover as a free download; Frank Ocean’s ‘Orange’ remixed (stream)

The Afghan Whigs at Bowery Ballroom, May 2012 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)

The newly-reformed Afghan Whigs have been covering Frank Ocean’s “Lovecrimes” at recent live shows (like at Bowery Ballroom back in May, video below) and have just released a studio version of the track which is a free download from their website. You can also stream it below. This is the second new recording the ‘Whigs have released this year, the other being a cover of Marie “Queenie” Lyons’ “See and Don’t See.”

The Whigs, who are curating and headlining this year’s ATP NY (“I’ll Be Your Mirror”) which recently relocated from Asbury Park to Pier 36 in NYC, have recently added dates to their fall tour and that updated list is below.

While on the subject, tangentially, of Frank Ocean’s Best New Music’d Channel Orange, it just got the “slowdown remix” treatment by DJ Slim K which you can stream below or download here.
