Another week, another Portland group unveiling a beautiful set at the Daytrotter Sessions. This time, it's White Hinterland, stripped down and sonorous in their simplicity. While the duo is usually known for more produced and programmed sounds, here they step away from the electronics in favor of a single piano and singer Casey Dienel's richly alluring voice. Like all Daytrotter Sessions, this one showcases the band in a new light, intimate and humble, yet White Hinterland's stunning turn here more than just a change of pace, it's a revelation. You can hear the first track of the session, "Icarus," right now before heading over to grab the rest of it, which is absolutely something you're going to want to do.
