Way back in FADER #55, we wrote about Seattle's Whalebones. They are indebted to Neil Young and honey slides just as much as the weird city/country hybrid that Seattle has going for it. As you may or may not know, FADER #74 is currently on stands, so by our calculations it's been A REALLY LONG TIME since Whalebones have released any widely available music. But the past is the past. We forgive you Whalebones. The band has a new record available on bandcamp and it is full of slow burning meditations on city life and bummer life and generally just life. Listen to it right here, and if you like it, throw them some cash.
