ALBUM RELEASE // Strand of Oaks ‘HEAL’ Out Now Worldwide, On Tour Now



The new Strand of Oaks album HEAL is out now.

On previous Strand of Oaks albums, Tim Showalter displayed his knack for moving and dark folk and now on HEAL we see growth and change into an immersive sound with loud, punching guitar riffs and synth-heavy hooks akin to his recent touring show. This is rock in its most raw form, unapologetic and full of deep emotion. Showalter says “I’m inspired by bands that go the distance, to a dangerous place…there’s an uncertainty to ‘HEAL’ that makes me nervous and excited at the same time. It’s sad, but it sounds like a celebration, like I’m crying and laughing and sticking both middle fingers in the air all at the same time.”

Get the new album now via iTunes, Amazon, SC Distribution, and your local record store.

Critics praise the new album:

“Folk songwriter Strand Of Oaks heals on rock ‘n’ roll masterpiece”

- A.V. CLUB | A

“overwhelmingly epic and unashamedly ambitious”

- UNCUT | ★★★★

“Epic…it’s easy to hear how it might serve as curative to a new generation of songwriters.”

- NPR

“Glorious…matches Springsteen’s phrasing with the Replacements’ wounded alt-rock.”

- SPIN

See Tim and the band on tour starting this this Thursday in NYC at Mercury Lounge with tickets here. See the rest of the tour dates below.

ALBUM RELEASE // White Hinterland ‘Baby’ Out Now, Tour With S. Carey Starts This Week, European Dates In May




It has been four years since Kairos came out in 2010, and now Casey Dienel aka White Hinterland‘s newest album Baby is out now worldwide.

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).

Critics praise the new album:

“Dienel’s considerable vocal skills hold it all together, [her] vocal acrobatics stay riveting”

- Rolling Stone

“bask in the irrepressible Venusian energy of one of the finest female artists in modern pop music”

- musicOMH

Get the new album Baby via iTunes, SC Distribution, Amazon, and your local record store.

Click read more to see her tour dates starting tonight with a free show in San Francisco. She starts a run of shows with S. Carey on Saturday in Nomran, Oklahoma at The Opolis. European dates start in Leeds at Brudenell Social Club.
