Whitehorse presses on with new vinyl editions of the duo’s most recent releases, which include the JUNO Award nominated holiday album, A Whitehorse Winter Classic (only the fourth holiday album to receive a nomination, alongside Sarah McLachlan, Michael Bublé, and Jess Moskaluke). The album, reviewed by Rolling Stone, Los Angeles Times, PopMatters and more, took the road less traveled in holiday music with 10 original songs that celebrated family and togetherness while taking stock of the ups and downs that come with the season.
The band’s second instalment of The Northern South project, released in full in January 2019, dealt a hand of blues bops, sexed up cuts and hellfire gospels rewritten for our modern apocalypse. With an eye on the end-of-days and Whitehorse’s ear for blues grooves, The Northern South Vol. 2 expanded the universe of the Northern South to with foreplay, foreboding, fever and Fenders — plenty of them — on cuts from Howlin’ Wolf, Willie Dixon, Jimmy Reed, Slim Harpo and more. The vinyl edition features both volumes 1 and 2 for a complete (thus far) collection.
This fall, Whitehorse’s will be on the road in Ontario, with additional appearances at Gord Downie’s Secret Path Live in Toronto, the Women’s Blues Revue (Melissa McClelland only) and at Inuksuk High School in Iqaluit.
