The Constellations at Smith’s Olde Bar
Atlanta’s premier indie rock super-group put on one helluva party, so what better way to rock in the New Year in the ATL?
By Alec Wooden
Fresh off the release of their second release, Kairos, White Hinterland‘s Casey Dienel and Shawn Creeden discuss musical philosophies, the new record’s decidedly new direction and Creeden’s post-practice pasta dishes.
What’s your general philosophy as an artist?
Casey Dienel: When I feel curious about something, I’m compelled to explore and experiment with it. Maybe I discover a new range in my voice, or a new approach to rhythm. Discovery is so so so important. Without it, I would probably disengage. Part of the reason for this is that music is by nature ephemeral – you can never recreate anything exactly the same way twice. You sing a melody and it’s gone, time carries it away. So as soon as I complete a song or a record, I try to let go of it. Some elements stick, but I believe that whatever comes back to you is all that’s worth keeping. If by being ourselves we can illuminate or expand what passes for beautiful/interesting in pop/music/art — there is no greater contribution I could hope to have.
Kairos is an interesting record name, meaning (loosely translated) “supreme moment” in Greek. How’d you settle on that?
CD: I’m obsessed with Latin and Greek mythology/philosophy. When I saw the word, it was instant. We’d been trying to name our record, using descriptors like “time outside of time” or “filmy, diaphanous, hypnotic”. It hit me and that’s usually how I make all the big decisions: from the gut.
Do you have a “supreme moment” of your career thus far?
God, I hope not! I hope it’s still on its way. Read more about Q&A with White Hinterland; Playing DC9 with Dosh on April 25 and 529 on April 28 …

Psychedelic southern-grunge band Dead Confederate play Atlanta this Friday, April 9. The forever touring Dead Confederate will bring their wall of sound to 529, along with openers Turf War. Dead Confederate first hit the scene after winning the 2006 Open Mic Madness competition in Atlanta. Since then the band has toured with Dinosaur Jr and Meat […]

In the Court of Let’s Wrestle
By Eric Chavez
When it comes to British rockers, they just seem to do it better. The Beatles, Bowie, The Clash, Led Zeppelin … the list could go on. In America, rock “music” tends to be nothing but background music for your local teen clothing store, and popular acts such as Boys Like Girls, Fall Out Boy, and Good Charlotte aren’t breaking any new rocky ground. With that said, Let’s Wrestle are adding a little bit of their British beats to the sometimes dry world of rock.
