Hot Mulligan - Why Would I Watch - Blue
Bolstered by 140 million Spotify streams, a sold-out nationwide headlining tour, support for the likes of The Wonder Years and New Found Glory and headlines in Alternative Press, Hot Mulligan's third LP, Why Would I Watch cements their evolution as one the most versatile and profoundly moving bands in the underground. Produced by longtime collaborator Brett Romnes, Why Would I Watch is Hot Mulligan at their loudest, their poppiest, and, ultimately, their most poignant. "We didn't really have grand ambitions when we went in to make this album," explains Freeman. "I liked you'll be fine, and I just wanted us to make another good one." Adds Sanville wryly: "If we had made a bad record, I'd have gotten into a plane and fallen out of it." Therein lies the true magic of Hot Mulligan, the push and pull of puns and pathos that might seem diametrically opposed at first but actually intersect to perfectly encapsulate life in a heavy, ADD-addled world.
