Despite their northern latitude, Canadian husband-and-wife duo Whitehorse revel in the sounds of the deep American South. From blues-rock stompers such as “My Babe” to folksy acoustic duets as on “Big Boss Man,” their repertoire runs the gamut of time-honored Americana influences while making subtle dalliances into modern production. To wit, drum machine and punchy vocal filters add futuristic flair to otherwise traditional sounds. In 2014, the duo released the EP Éphémère sans repère, which features French-language versions of several songs from previous releases. Catch Whitehorse on Thursday, May 25, at the Higher Ground Showcase Lounge in South Burlington. Locals Near North open.
