This is his sixth studio album and is finely produced, journeying across the vast American continent. I’m not sure if that is a place I wish to visit these days, but Jim White makes it feel magical, heartwarming and limitless, helped in turns by his hometown (Athens) finest musicians, plus Dead Rock West and Holly Golightly. It’s a fine ensemble.
The vinyl version is a double vinyl with MP3 download and includes ‘Memories Of Sochichiro’, exclusive to vinyl editions.

The latest in Mark Kozelek's endless parade of releases. This time he is alongside Ben Boye and The Dirty Three's Jim White. The credits contain the increasingly worrying credit of 'Mark Kozelek: Words'. Therefore you sort of know what you are getting- vomit. The song I heard is all about a cat and I never ever want to hear it again.
Jim White draws influence from country and blues as well as more modern styles (electronics!), putting it together into the weighty and eclectic songs of No Such Place. Believe it or not, the term that Mr White has come up with to decide this sound is ‘Hick Hop’: fair enough Jim. Double LP on Luaka Bop: the fourth side contains an etching rather than music.
Jim White's weird and wonderful debut album inspired one the most off-the-wall and fabulous music documentaries of all time, 'Searching for the Wrong-eyed Jesus'. The film features country noir artists such as The Handsome Family, David Johansen and the great David Eugene Edwards of 16 Horsepower fame. All this gives you a pretty good idea of what to expect here. Definitely one to check out if that's your bag. Vinyl LP on Luaka Bop.
