Jim White: Transnormal Skiperoo
Buy! - (Luaka Bop)
The 4th album from this eccentric Florida singer-songwriter sounds like his most cohesive and accomplished work to date. While some of his earlier southern gothic recordings would occasionally verge on parody, he tones down the weirdness here and focuses on simply crafting great songs with a seamless blend of atmospheric rock, folk, blues, country, R&B and other styles. Accompanied by a stellar lineup including the New York roots-music band Olabelle, Seattle’s Tucker Martine and Laura Veirs, bluegrass duo Jeff & Vida, Georgia’s Don Chambers & Goat and Forro in the Dark percussionist Maura Refosco. 2/21/2008 - Don Yates
