Colin and Dana's labor of love is almost ready to see the light of day! Well, I guess it already is ready, it's just picking out it's favourite outfit. Let's Whisper have been a sort of Smittens side project for years, but The Shortest Days is their very first album. The firsts don't stop there, as it's also WeePOP's first full length! It's due out April 9th, so mark your calendars because you don't want to miss out on the hand-screened goodies.
Like with the Keep A Secret EP, Colin and Dana's songwriting on The Shortest Days comes from opposite sides of the same spectrum to make an album that delivers far more than you'd expect from a band named "Let's Whisper," while still remaining coherent, and identifiably Whispered.
Tullycraftian in its variety, you're as likely to hear something reminiscent of Pipas or Pocketbooks as you are The Smittens. I've got no trouble saying this is one of the best albums of the year, and I'd be surprised if my mind's changed 8 months from now. Order your copy here. I promise it'll literally make Spring seem better.
The stuff I post on here is for primarily for sampling purposes. If you like something you hear, you should go buy the album. And while you're at it, you should buy a t-shirt so the world can see that you support good things.
If you're a band and want something taken down, just say so. I'd say you should sleep on it first. Or at least have some cookies. If you're certain you still want something removed, I can make that happen.
If you're a band and you think that you fit in with what I talk about, then let me know right now! I'll put up a nice little blurb, and a picture, and some files (if they're available). It'll be a good time.
