Whitehorse at the WFMU Showcase during SXSW (more by BBG)
Whitehorse

Ever since Whitehorse hit the stages at WFMU during SXSW, I was hooked. The Aussie crew's uber-brutal death-doom was impressive live, but would that cloak of darkness spread into recorded medium? Luckily, Whitehorse's Progression (which we discussed in April) expertly captures the band's dirge and destruction, and now that it's out domestically on At A Loss, you can hear it for yourself. Stream the entire Progression LP below. Totally underrated, and devastating.

Whitehorse - Progression album stream

The label will release the LP in digital and vinyl form in the coming months. For now you can grab it on CD.

Whitehorse also have a split 7" out with the Body which is sold out at the label.

The Body recently played a show in NYC with full choir. Unlike Whitehorse, they also have a few more dates coming up in the US, including a 7/12 CT show with Harvey Milk (who play Brooklyn one day later):

The Body -- 2011 Tour Dates
Tue Jul 12th New Haven, CT @ Daniel Street w/ Harvey Milk
Wed Jul 13th Providence, RI @ Machines With Magnets w/ Yob and Dark Castle
Fri Sep 9th Raleigh,NC @ Kings Barcade (as part of Hopscotch Festival)

Whitehourse -- 2011 Tour Dates
Sat Jul 16th Brunswick, VIC Australia @ 284 - 286 Albert ST
Mon Jul 25th Melbourne, VIC Australia @ Northcote Social

^ That doesn't even make sense. Just stop embarrasing youself, trying to make a joke there, you indie faggot. Your energy is better spent not trying to catch HIV. I know it's hard :(

Ha, 'hard', anyway I'm sorry that it's difficult for you to stay away from the HIV. I mean, 'you know it's hard'. Try a committed relationship with somebody who isn't a complete & total whore if you can, but for you that might be hard. Enjoy the cock.
