*** Afghan Whigs, "1965," Columbia.

On the Cincinnati group's 11th record, frontman Greg Dulli continues to play the part of a sweet-talking Lothario who treats love like an extreme sport. Tracks such as "Neglekted" and "Somethin' Hot" are the ugliest sort of come-ons, full of innuendo and whispered imprecations, yet Dulli's velvety vocals and the band's sharp, punchy melodies win you over every time. The group plays the El Rey Theatre Dec. 4-5.
