Editors’ Notes

Jim White’s Appalachia-meets-the-Pentecostal-south storytelling (some call it gothic folk) clearly sets him apart from many alt-country/Americana artists. While they share a penchant for atmospherics that paint a uniquely American landscape – wide open spaces dotted with rusting cars, and lonely train stations teeming with strangers — White’s songs are colored by a background steeped in struggle: drug use, spiritual conflict, and severe depression. No Such Place veers slightly from White’s superb 1997 debut, taking liberties with new sounds and textures — more keyboards, ambient noises like thunder, sirens, insects, and the sound of a scratchy turntable — allowing his work to be polished just a little more. “Handcuffed to a Fence” sounds at first like a different artist: with sassy slide guitar and hip-thrusting rhythm, it’s almost upbeat, a bit glossy, and smells of optimism — until you realize it’s all a humorous way to make the best of a bad situation (“… freedom’s just a stupid superstition”). The following track, “The Wound Never Heals,” reverts to a more typical, subtle White creation, with shadowy instrumentation and murderous characters. Roger Miller’s “King of the Road” takes on a new life under White’s skewed vision of surreal, countrified noodling, and the rainy day rumination, “Hey! You Going My Way?” has a surprising nod to Lou Reed, with whom White shares more than a few youthful indiscretions. The thinnest veneer of trip-hop adds a different luster to some of the tracks (thanks to a variety of producers, including trip-hoppers Morcheeba), making the venture even more exotic and multi-dimensional.

Customer Reviews

Fabulous, Strange and surprisingly electronic...

Jim White has a unique musical genius that is best revealed in his live shows. Diverse, odd, fascinating. His recorded work is multi-faceted, rich and at times haunting. This album, with producers Morcheeba and Q-Burns Abstract Message - is a fascinating hybrid between folk and electronic genres. You can laugh and cry at this one. Makes me want to drink beer on my front porch and watch the passerbys. Highly recommended.

very good album

jim white has the southern gothic down pat. songs about murder, love and dispair, all set to a lush electronic soundscape. listen to this at night.

This Man is a musical Genius

Jim White is not easily contained or classified...southern, folk, electronic hick-hop. His first release Wrong Eyed Jesus was an undeniable unflinching masterpiece that must be slowly absorbed and ferment just under the skin in your psyche. Qwirky, weird, off-beat, funny...everything lackiong from todays music scene is here in magnificent brilliance just waiting for you to soak it all in...buy alll this mans stuff and see him live and ye shall be reborn!!!
