Whiteout is the third studio album by alternative rock band Boss Hog.

Music[edit]

While previous Boss Hog albums were indelibly stamped with the guitar-heavy aesthetic of Jon Spencer, AllMusic critic Chris Handyside describes Whiteout as fully planned and led by Cristina Martinez. The results are a modernized version of the group's signature sound, "garage punk and new wave girl groups as refracted through a 21st century looking glass."[1] SPIN called it "ingeniously slicked-up garage pop".[2]
