It has been four years since Kairos came out in 2010, and now Casey Dienel aka White Hinterland readies her newest album Baby for release on April 1st, 2014.
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).
Pre-order the new album Baby via iTunes to get “Ring The Bell” instantly, SC Distribution for the limited edition clear/white marble vinyl (while supplies last) and tour poster, Amazon, and your local record store.

Producer Alan Wilkis is known for his work behind the scenes, particularly remixing the of songs of indie-poppers and rockers. In his latest project, Wilkis combines art, music, and video for the creation of “Prints,” a series of singles formed out of collaboration in the studio and through the interwebs.
Our girl Casey Dienel, of White Hinterland, lends what seems to be an effortless talent to the newest song, “Shadow”. The track starts as a tempting jam, laying down a beat and groove that’s pretty irresistible. What follows is an intertwining of Dienel’s sweet, but ultimately haunting vocals and Lyrics Born’s straightforward rhymes. The two grow off each other, playing a “shadow game.” Go ahead and give it a listen below. You know you want to.
White Hinterland’s Shawn Creeden has already proven himself a modern renaissance man: beat maker, baker, wildlife artist extraordinaire. Now, he’s a published author. This Is The Same Hillside, his document of adventures under the influence of psychedelic mushrooms is available now from Publication Studio. According to the publishing house: “(Creeden’s) highly personal graphic scrawl keeps the eye lingering on the page while suggesting a deeper psychological world just beneath the surface.” Ordering now.
Meanwhile, White Hinterland’s Casey Dienel was also talking literature recently with Brooklyn Vol. 1. She discussed her Hungry Oyster food blog, and the food-writing of Nabokov, F. Scott Fitzgerald and MFK Fisher.
