Whitehorse: Sweet Melissa Jean (Six Shooter Records): The ever-prolific and shape-shifting duo known as Whitehorse returns with another winner.

Sweet Melissa Jean is the third track to complete the set of bonus cuts from the acclaimed 2017 Panther In The Dollhouse album.

The song is slow and stately, with Melissa McClelland's pure and haunting voice accompanied by the familiar resonant and bold twang of Luke Doucet's guitar. The production work of Gus Van Go and Werner F is clean and focused.

A press release aptly calls the cut "Perfect for late, late night backyard summer stargazing and anything by candlelight." The fact that a 'bonus' track is this good speaks volumes about this duo's deep talents.


On June 15, Whitehorse plays one of its most prestigious gigs yet - Whitehorse Orchestrated with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, at Roy Thomson Hall.
