New Video: iamamiwhoami

In 2009 she sent numerous teaser videos to several digital music publications and bloggers, but now it seems like an official release is on it’s way.

On Tour: White Hinterland

Portland-based singer and multi-instrumentalist Casey Dienel, AKA White Hinterland, has announced a UK tour to take place this November/December, including a London headline show at the White Heat club on Tuesday 6th December. White Hinterland, signed to Dead Oceans, is part of the recent emergence of solo female artists following in the brave footsteps of Bjork (along with Zola Jesus and Chelsea Wolfe to name a couple). Watch the video for ‘No Logic’ here.

Watch Chelsea Wolfe Live Session

Having released her recent sophomore album Apokalypsis, LA’s spooky songstress Chelsea Wolfe performed a 3-song performance for i-D Magazine. The video demonstrates the artist’s ability to create hauntingly spectral soundscapes full of gloomy layers and ominous atmospherics. Kind of like Bjork’s evil sister, there’s plenty of dark menace to revel in. Watch the performance here.
