Birthed from the film In Search of the Wrong-Eyed Jesus and a chance glimpse at Burning Man, this combination of bluegrass and folk from Jim White and The Packway Handle Band allows the band much more experimental freedom and for Jim to step away from his more usual alternative country sound. Schizophrenically brilliant. On vinyl.

8/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 9th February 2015
I don't wish Jim White to stop making the music he usually makes, but this upbeat - shall we say - pop-bluegrass on offer here is great and quite a departure from his brilliant yet stark alt. country classics like "No Such Place". It's melodic, catchy, singable and quite rewarding. It sways between fairly traditional bluegrass stompers and upbeat Americana and the mix works really well. "Smack Dab in a Big Tornado", "Breathing Room", "Corn Pone Refugee" and "Jim 3:16" are the immediate standouts but it's a consistent album.
