WATCH // White Hinterland Shares New “Baby” Video, On Tour Now With S. Carey

Today VEVO premiered the new cinematic video for title track “Baby” off the new White Hinterland album. Directed by Anna Rose Holmerthe video was shot in Casey’s hometown in southeastern Massachusetts. Watch the video above or here on Casey’s YouTube channel.

Casey writes, “I was drawn to Anna’s treatment because she puts a lot of heart into her work, and ‘Baby’ feels like the most raw and delicate of all the songs on the album … whatever we did had to be especially personal. I wanted us to shoot it in my hometown because I think it’s beautiful here. It feels like a visual love letter to the Scituate that I grew up in.”

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

ALBUM ANNOUNCE // Strand of Oaks New Album ‘HEAL’ Out June 24th, Stream “Goshen ’97″ Now

Today we are immensely grateful to welcome Strand of Oaks aka Tim Showalter to the ever-expanding Dead Oceans family. We’ve followed Tim closely and then were blown away by his live show when he toured with DOC artists Tallest Man On Earth and Matthew Houck aka Phosphorescent and also Damien Jurado from our sister label Secretly Canadian in the last two years. Now, we’re excited to announce Tim’s new record HEAL will be out on Dead Oceans June 24th.

On previous Strand of Oaks albums Tim 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. 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.”

Preview the new album with the track “Goshen ’97″ above, an ode to his hometown of Goshen, Indiana and first finding music in his parent’s basement. Listen to the track, which premiered yesterday on World Cafe, on our YouTube / Soundcloud and it features Tim dueling guitars with rock god J Mascis of Dinosaur Jr..

Pre-order the new album via iTunes, Amazon, SC Distribution, and your local record store.

Stay tuned for more details and tour dates to be announced. Click read more for artwork and tracklisting.

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.
