Happy Holidays From White Hinterland and S. Carey!

“Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” – S. Carey + White Hinterland from S. Carey on Vimeo.

To cap of their lovely US tour together this month and celebrate the season, White Hinterland and Jagjaguwar’s S. Carey worked up this great improved version of “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas.” They just passed it along to us. And truly, it’s just the perfect thing to send us off on our week-long winter break. Stand-up bass and mouth trombones from the S. Carey crew lay down a nice, loose jazz foundation for White Hinterlander Casey Dienel’s lilting croon. Good year, gang.

White Hinterland Eidolon Digital EP Available Now On Bandcamp, Tour Kicks Off Sunday!

COVER3v3

Eidolon is an Ancient Greek term that means “human shadow,” or spiritual double, of a living being. Fitting, then, that White Hinterland’s Eidolon EP serve as a companion piece to Kairos, the stunning full-length released in March from this Portland group.

Collected and curated over the course of 2010, the songs found on Eidolon reflect the very spirit of White Hinterland in that there is never a single definitive version of a song. They are written to be flexible and stretch in all directions. It’s a gorgeous marriage of post-dupstep, airy art-pop and chilled, personal R&B.

All of the proceeds go to music education in Haiti- specifically, the Holy Trinity School of Music in Port Au Prince. We were sent some fantastic photos of the school- which you can see above and below.
