White Hinterland

Freedom often begins from terror, and White Hinterland's third album, Baby, addresses the fear that comes along with breaking out of established rituals, or leaving a comfortable place, and striking out into the unknown. Four years after her profile-raising release, Kairos (2010), Casey Dienel aka White Hinterland has taken the gloves off and knuckled down to produce a deep, dark, heady mix of songs. After two and a half years of writing and recording material in Montreal and Portland, OR, Dienel moved back in to her family home in Scituate, MA. There she forged a new aesthetic, spending five months building her own studio, The Glades, in her parents' basement - the same space where she practiced piano and vocal lessons as a child. Determined to helm her new album, Dienel spent months studying production, poring over YouTube tutorials about Protools, mic'ing techniques and other minutiae. Armed with this self-taught skill and her new studio, Dienel set forth to subvert the existing power structure of male producer as svengali and female artist as figurehead (see: Billy Corgan/Courtney Love, Timbaland/Aaliyah, Phil Spector/The Ronettes). She created her own, new path on Baby, which showcases her as a singer/songwriter/producer who has only become bolder and more resolute over the past three-plus years. Calling in her friends as pinch hitters, Dienel worked acclaimed musicians Sean Carey (Bon Iver, S. Carey), Neal Morgan (Joanna Newsom, Bill Callahan), and Cole Kamen-Green (Beyoncé).

ALBUM ANNOUNCE // White Hinterland ‘Baby’ Out April 1st, 2014, Watch Lyric Video For First Single ‘Ring The Bell’





It has been four years since Kairos came out in 2010, and now Casey Dienel aka White Hinterland readies her newest album Baby for release on April 1st, 2014.

Recorded in a self-built studio inside her old family home in Scituate, MA, Casey removes herself from the sprawling atmospheric production of Kairos and hones her sound with focused, confident production and a present narrative. Baby is about facing your fears and making the most out of your situation, being bold and pushing forward past opposition. On the new record Casey says “the themes of this record to me are personal agency, strength, growth, determination…and to get those things is usually fucking terrifying and comes with casualties and loss.” Joining Casey on the new record includes acclaimed artists Sean Carey (Bon Iver, S. Carey), Neal Morgan (Joanna Newsom, Bill Callahan), and Cole Kamen-Green (Beyoncé).

To preview the new album, listen to new song “Ring The Bell” on our Soundcloud or watch the truly inspired lyric video by Derrick Belcham above / on our YouTube page.

Listen: White Hinterland Featured on Alan Wilkis Single


Producer Alan Wilkis is known for his work behind the scenes, particularly remixing the of songs of indie-poppers and rockers. In his latest project, Wilkis combines art, music, and video for the creation of “Prints,” a series of singles formed out of collaboration in the studio and through the interwebs.

Our girl Casey Dienel, of White Hinterland, lends what seems to be an effortless talent to the newest song, “Shadow”. The track starts as a tempting jam, laying down a beat and groove that’s pretty irresistible. What follows is an intertwining of Dienel’s sweet, but ultimately haunting vocals and Lyrics Born’s straightforward rhymes. The two grow off each other, playing a “shadow game.” Go ahead and give it a listen below. You know you want to.
