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.

ALBUM RELEASE // Mark McGuire’s ‘Along The Way’ Out Now, Live Dates Start at SXSW In March



Mark McGuire‘s new album Along The Way is out now worldwide. Previously a member of trio Emeralds, Mark delivers a new concept album of personal reflection and enlightenment.

Listen to some tracks from the new album including a new remix by CFCF and others by Shinji, Prins Thomas [Lindstrom collaborator] or here on our Soundcloud page.

On Along The Way, McGuire writes in the liner notes,
“This story is an odyssey through the vast, unknown regions of the mind…the endless unfolding of psychological landscapes, leading to perpetual discoveries and expansions, in a genuinely emergent and infinite world of worlds.” Further he writes “[the new album] is not a critique, it is not instructional, nor is it a proclamation that I believe I have gone through this journey and succeeded, not by a long shot. It is, however, a journey that I truly believe is offered to every man and woman who has ever lived, through the lightness that breathes through your heart when you feel the true touch of life, and the light of love.”

Get Along The Way now through SC Distribution, iTunes, Amazon and your local record store.

Early reviews on Along The Way:

“McGuire creates a journey that will absorb and transport any listener willing to let its sincere warmth and good wishes into their hearts.”

- THE WIRE

“Repeated listening will take you down new paths, unlocking Easter eggs along the way; immersive, entrancing and absolutely non-linear.”

- THE 405 | 8/10

“he [Mark] approaches it with a curiosity of spirit that makes ‘Along The Way’ a captivating and nourishing listen”

- NME

You can get Stitches on iTunes, Amazon, your local record store, and from SC Distribution.
