Spotlight: White Hinterland

Winter Hinderland / Courtesy of Dead Oceans, photo by Tod SeelieWhite Hinterland, who is really just 22-year-old Casey Dienel, plays a nice combination of those lovable jazz and indie pop aesthetics. The sound she creates, most would say, is a bit over her age, but I’d think that the arbitrary number doesn’t play into it. No, Dienel is a simple, honest-sounding songwriter, which works greatly to her benefit. “Dreaming of the Plum Trees,” posted below for easy listening and download, is as much influenced by Peanuts composer extraordinare Vince Guaraldi as it is anything, if not more. Her album, Phylactery Factory, will be released March 4 on Dead Oceans.
