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