RIYL: Real Estate, Drugdealer, Smith Westerns

Label: Secretly Canadian

Whitney’s 2016 debut Light Upon The Lake was an indie rock triumph, showcasing Julien Ehrlich and Max Kakacek’s knack for writing those insta-catchy song hooks you fell for in their previous group Smith Westerns. After 3 years, the group has a sophomore follow-up titled Forever Turned Around.  Their newest single Giving Up has that wistful ‘AM Gold‘ vibe perfected in the early 70s with groups like Bread, Seals & Crofts, America and Dan Fogelberg.  Ehrlich’s falsetto harmonies dissolve into Kakacek’s lazy river chord progressions like a paisley smock draped over shag carpeting.  Whoa-oh-oh, it’s magic…

The ‘buy’ link takes you to the vinyl variant from Vinyl Me, Please, a gold colorway with foil lettering cover art.  That is limited to a mere 500 and will sell out first, I guarantee it. If you love creased posters, compact discs and other useless items, be sure to grab Secretly Canadian’s bundle HERE with the album on forest bark-colored wax.  You can also buy the bark vinyl by itself from various online distros for under $20.
