Light Upon the Lake is the moseying debut album of Whitney, a septet built around the core songwriting team of Julien Ehrlich and Max Kakacek, both formerly of Smith Westerns. Often surprisingly intimate for a seven-piece, the group makes subtle use of instrumentation like brass and strings to flesh out without symphonizing their country-tinged indie pop. The melancholy opener, "No Woman," begins with cushiony keyboards and a short brass fanfare before Ehrlich - who doubles as the band's lead singer and drummer - introduces his misty, double-tracked falsetto.

referencing Light Upon The Lake, LP, Album, SC337 when the label doesn't care for you to know who they hired to do the pressing you can usually guess it's United, or Rainbo, or GZ-Media or the like- all of whom routinely crank out inferior quality vinyl as the rule- with rare exceptions. Those companies do not seem to be concerned with quality. Sadly, Secretly Canadian pressings often suffer as a result. So who pressed this subpar mess? Reply Notify me Helpful.

Light Upon the Lake, their debut LP, is a short collection of short songs; half of them are made up of easygoing guitar flourishes, the other half feature woozy strings and slurred brass. This is the Corona of rock records, as Whitney consistently walk that fine line between identifiable and platitudinal. Take the chorus from most recent single No Matter Where We Go : I can take you out/I wanna drive all around with you with the windows down/And we can run all right.
Their debut album, Light Upon the Lake, is as majestic and as ethereal as its title implies. To make their grand introduction to the world, Whitney chose to lead off with the song No Woman - it’s the first track on this album, and the first single that the band released to the masses. They made the right choice. No Woman a gorgeous, emotionally evocative tune. Opening with a tender, electric piano that’s punched up with a brusque trumpet part, the song quickly falls into a sparse, acoustic guitar-driven ballad.
