White Hinterland: Kairos


It's pretty good.

In the real world, a Hinterland is any area behind a port or river of some such.  In the musical world White Hinterland is the duo Casey Dienel and Shawn Creeden.  And on March 9th, 2010 they’ll release their third collection under said name.

Kairos is excellent.  Of course that’s a matter of opinion, but isn’t everything?  We guarantee you will be (or should be) seeing this on all sorts of “Best of the Year” lists and “favorite” whatevers.

It’s two parts Spektor, three parts Feist and sixty parts New York city night life trippy.  Yet when you set ear to phone you’ll find more than enough that pokes ya in all sorts of original ways.  You’ll be experiencing shivers and tingles in places you didn’t know you had.

TWJ gives it 9 out of 10 Liberty nickels circa 1900.  (Yes it’s that good)

And if you pre-order now, you get a mp3 download of the album immediately, as well as earning a chance to win some pretty neat artwork from Shawn Creeden himself.
