Whale House Debuts Two Singles and Turntable CD

Eric Christenson |

Eau Claire-based rockers Whale House have a couple of new tracks up their collective sleeve, and they’re gearing up to share them with the world. The band dropped a pair of singles digitally, one called “Freeway” (an acoustic strummer with a distinct ’90s-alt-rock flavor) and the other called “Think Of Me” (a full-on rock song with chugging guitars, tight energy, and a super catchy vocal hook). The two singles anchor the album, which the band will release on March 19 with a show/celebration at the House of Rock, joined by Minneapolis acts The Heavy Set and The Persian Lips. The new CD comes with a cool merch package, courtesy of local screen printing wizards Ambient Inks. It includes a handmade, lathe-cut turntable CD (you can play it in a CD player or with a vinyl record player), screen-printed posters, and album art by Minneapolis painter Lucas Gluesenkamp. Catch them at the aforementioned release show, or at The Raw Deal in Menomonie on April 23.
