Singer-songwriter Jim White skirts genres. He has his country moments, his flashes of folk, his rocker tendencies, and an abiding love for sound exploration that takes his songs out of the normal traffic loop and into space. Transnormal Skiperoo, White’s fourth studio album, named after the indescribable joy he’s known to feel on occasion just for being alive, is a deeply layered collection of styles merging and clashing to great effect. Produced by Joe Pernice and Michael Deming and recorded with the band Ollabelle, along with guest spots from local Georgia bluegrass duo Jeff and Vida on the album’s closer “Long Long Day,” Transnormal diversifies throughout. “Take Me Away” uses his rustic tone, dobro, and banjo to punctuate his southern drawl. “Turquoise Car” hop-steps with a goofy free spiritedness, whereas “Fruit of the Vine” is seven minutes of ambient space travel where White’s drawl curtails to a whisper. “Crash into the Sun,” employs Tucker Martine and Laura Veirs to work a shadowy funk. A moody nightclub noir swagger haunts “Diamonds to Coal.” White’s eclectic impulses create abrupt stylistic shifts that rely on the element of surprise.
only 2 reviews to one of the most sublime individ divid viduals ever. I can't get enough of this guy. I got all his albums- maybe it's a southern thing. I grew up in Texas. I love you Jim White. I truly do. I loved that story you told in LA at King King about being a short lived sound designer. You still have that leather jacket you went out to buy? I'm listening to this album as I write and i gotta believe you're the most transcendent MF around. Mucho Gusto.
Jim White continues to be amazing
I love Jim White. Every single album is good- I cannot pick a favorite. And this one is just as excellent as its predecessors. Jailbird is such a beautiful, poetic song. There's also a touch of humor to lighten things up here and there, and (as usual in White's work) a generous amount of storytelling throughout the album. I could not be happier!
Wow. Can't stop listening to it.
All of Jim Whites albums are incredible, but this is my favorite so far. It's sounds are haunting and beautiful, and as always the lyrics are mystifying, complex and inspiring. Something about this guy speaks to me on levels rarely touched by other artists. I actually shed tears listening to this. Tears of joy, sorrow, longing, love, all of it. Amazing stuff.
