Indie Spotlight

For the week of Black Friday I like to highlight some of my favorite musical discoveries from the past year. This is mostly just to flex my hipster cred, I do run a music blog after-all, but it's also nice to showcase music that isn't getting the attention it deserves.

Whitehorse not only deserves more attention, they must be desperate for it. They're wallowing in Indie obscurity on a label whose own YouTube channel has less than 10,000 subs. The husband and wife duo are extraordinarily talented, with an Alt. Rock style that leans much harder on the roots of Classic Rock than most Alt. Rock acts these days.

Their fourth album, Leave No Bridge Unburned is my favorite; with some very memorable tunes. If you want a fun, bouncy, Rock beat you'll enjoy the hell out of Downtown. Embedded here I want to emphasize the emotive Baby What's Wrong; which best illustrates their style and musical mastery.

funny - you seem to have a thing for Canadian husband/wife rock! Last year at this time you posted about the band Dear Rouge - another husband & wife synth-rock duo.

I was thinking about them as I posted this! It's weird, but true. Maybe it is because I got married in Canada? Some kind of weird Canadian Voodoo in the ceremony put me on the same wavelength! O Canada!
Thanks for these suggestions. Always good to hear about some lesser known artists (who deserve better recognition). Although not quite the same, Whitehorse brought back memories of a Timbuk 3 album I used to love. Keep the suggestions coming!

Interesting coincidence. The Massey Hall (well known performance venue in a Toronto) folks today just released this abbreviated concert footage from a Whitehorse concert there a year ago.

It’s with a full band.
I got to see them as headliners at a free outdoor concert this past summer, just the duo. I was impressed.
Thanks for sharing. I’d like to see them get more visibility too. They have their own pretty unique sound and style.
