From 2012-2016 The Whiles huddled together when they could, between having babies, returning to graduate school, and living in different cities the recording process was slow and deliberate. Primary songwriter Joe Peppercorn has always had a singular focus to his music, taking things slow until he feels the sound is what he is exactly hearing in his head, in simple terms he is a perfectionist. This has helped The Whiles create some of the most distinctive music out of Columbus, Ohio with All Music comparing their debut (“Colors of The Year”, 4/5 stars) to Nick Drake while Insound likened their ornate sound to Colin Blunstone. In 2016 The Whiles released “Mercury Ghost” the four-years in the making follow-up to the well-received “Somber Honey.” The record was scheduled to be released on vinyl and CD on Anyway Records through Revolver USA. Then, suddenly on the eve of the release Joe put the records in his basement and the record sat dormant until now. After several years of coaxing by Anyway Records head, Bela Koe-Krompecher—Joe has decided to have the record see a formal release. Columbus, Ohio doesn’t have the Pacific Ocean to throw the entire tapes of an amazing album in, but we do have basements so Joe did what many a conflicted songwriter does, he chucked the records in the basement until now. The reward is worth the wait.
