#29: Whitney – No Woman

 

Beautiful, ambling Americana from Chicago’s 7-piece outfit Whitney, who released their gorgeous debut album ‘Light Upon The Lake’ in 2016. Led by former Smith Westerns members Max Kakacek and Julian Ehrlich (the latter also used to play with Unknown Mortal Orchestra), they throw traditional wistful country music and indie rock together and produce something so accessible and breezy that you wonder how there aren’t hundreds more like them. They are a ball to see live, with some of the funniest crowd repartee to have passed through the independent venues this year. Hopefully Whitney will be back.
