Off The Record :: White Hinterland (Portland, OR)

Off The Record is a recurring feature here on the Drunkard that marries two of my greatest interests; music and travel. Having a locals perspective when visiting a new locale is the difference between experiencing it through the lens of a tourist and of that of a native.

Off The Record gathers some of my favorite artists, asks them to reflect on their city of residence, and choose a handful of places they could not live without -- be them bookstores, bars, restaurants or vistas.

The first thing you should know about  White Hinterland is that it's no longer soley Casey Dienel's nom de tune. Now a full-fledged group (including Shawn Creedon who contributes to the below) White Hinterland prepare for the March 9th release of Kairos, their second full-length following up 2008's (mostly) French covers EP,   Luniculaire. Dienel's been one to watch since we first covered her debut, Wind Up Canary in 2006. Kairos only furthers that sentiment. Below is Casey's guide to her adopted city of Portland, OR.
