Music to be stoned to. Not high, stoned. Whistle Peak’s lo-fi Americana fits in well with bands like Yeasayer and Colossal Gospel–bands who take traditional elements and play them a little … Strangely. Sometimes there’s an off-key accordi0n or a suffocated vocal. It’s always a little bit whimsical, a little bit painful, and never, ever takes itself too seriously. It’s music that’s willing to take a chance at failure, or at doing something radical and weird. It’s never broad, but never narrow.
Hopefully, by the time you’ve read down to hear you’re confused and curious enough to give them a try. But remember: This won’t make you skip or clap. It’s the sound of contemplative paintings.
Scheduled for release February 14, 2012, on Karate Body records.
