iTunes Editors’ Notes

Since White Hills’ Dead was limited to 1000 pressings, the Brooklyn band’s 2007 EP sold out in a matter of days. Fortunately the good folks at Thrill Jockey Records released a digital version replete with a bonus song. Following a trill of six-string feedback, “Dead” opens like a sonic storm swirling overhead. Guitarist and frontman Dave W. howls through layers of reverb, delay and analog tape-echo as drum patterns fly outward in allocated bursts.
