Jim White

Artist: Jim White

Album: Transnormal Skiperoo

Label: Luaka Bop

Genre: Alt-country, folk-rock

Comments: You may know Jim White from his excellent documentary Searching for the Wrong-Eyed Jesus (or its terrific soundtrack, featuring everything from Cat Power to Doc Watson to White's own tunes). One of the finest country artists around, White doesn't disappoint with his latest issue of folksy, bluesy, well-crafted tunes. Try "It's Been a Long Long Day," "A Town Called Amen," and the epic "Fruit of the Vine."
