Biography

"Titles never come easy to me, but this one did. Long before I recorded a single note I knew what I'd call it. That name, it was just in the air."

Singer songwriter Jim White has a habit of snatching meaning from thin air. His critically acclaimed debut album, The Mysterious Tale of How I Shouted Wrong-Eyed Jesus, tapped into the zeitgeist of what would soon blossom into ... Read more in Amazon's Jim White Store

Great sounds and engineering.
words + music
Overall, the slick production and the subtlety and lyrical gold mine make this just a fantastic, robust, textured album.

I read an article about Mr. Jim White in "GQ" of all places.

Jim White's first album "Wrong Eyed Jesus" was by far one of the best releases of the last decade. Fresh, original, haunting...it was an unexpected album from an unexpected artist. So, I've waited four years(!) for something new from Mr. White, and here it is. "No Such Place" has already leapfrogged ahead of WEJ on my favorites list and deservedly so. Taking his influence from many trance and groove artists and producers, Jim has crafted a truly amazing record that sounds like the future of music made from a recipe of traditional Americana and roots music of the past. More haunting and original than ever, this is an absolute stunner. I've had the pleasure of meeting Jim and seeing him live a few times, even interviewing him, and all I can say is "Thank _____ for Jim White," an artist who restores my faith in music in this dull musical landscape.

I bought this CD when it first came out in 2001 and sat back and waited for the accolades. They never came. It is one probably one of the most underated CD's in history. The music is quirky and strange, and immediately strking and impressive. But the greatness of this CD are the lyric driven themes of Jim White. I can't imagine anyone not being blown away by this fine work

Jim White, no relation, is as an eccentric, innovative, and refreshing new artist as we've heard in a while. He, along with a small contigent of talented producers, appears to have invented a new musical hybrid-- a combination of 'country' and so-called 'trip-hop' (itself a hybrid), which we shall hereby dub 'countryp-hop'(unless someone has beaten us to it or found a better name). White writes songs that bear a melodic resemblance to country music. Then he bends them lyrically and sonically into beautifully warped gems. To get what we mean, you need only to listen to his one cover. It is a version of "King of the Road", a road where Roger Miller collides with Tom Waits. Although this no longer makes it Top Ten material, it is every bit as catchy and much more provocative than Miller's original. The instruments employed on the album-- kalimba, melodium, celeste, toy flute, sitar, etc--are not the usual array for country music. And when the 'usual' are used--dobro, banjo, mandolin, etc--it is in a totally new and imaginative way. Now some of this is just a tad too strange for these ears to 'get', but we may just keep hitting "repeat" until we do.

Think Dylan slide guitar with a steady slow blues style and a spectacular vocal harmony keeping the groove. When I search for new music, I preview the 7th song, and I was blown away by Bound to Forget.

Listening to the rest of the album, I'd call it melodic harmonic southern blues drive mix rock, were that a genre.

I can't believe this hasn't been reviewed yet. Great music.

Two albums that I've been listening to through the past six months that have had particular lasting value include Califone's "Roomsound" and this one, Jim White's "No Such Place." Both seem to touch a deep chord with the myth of the vast open American country, the roads and the mountains and the cornfields, and the unique people that popular the nooks and crannies of this nation. These are people that wear an archetypal mask, and one might say they are joined with their story so well one can't tell if what you see is a mask, or their true face.
In this music, the context is the story of America, its dark and beautiful dream.

Format: Audio CD
Jim White's music first appeared during the second half of the 90's, born, it would seem, out of a subculture of calculated weirdness. With this second offering, I would have to argue that this guy is the real thing.
But there's more to White's music than the protracted mental agony and sensibly twisted visions that permeate it. Three of the songs, this time, "Handcuffed to a Fence...", "10 Miles to Go on...", and "A King of the Road" would all do well on the AAA circuit. "Corvair" is a low key rendering that maintains the kind of fragile beauty that one hears on an early Neil Young album.
NO SUCH PLACE is more polished than WRONG EYED JESUS, making it apparent that the artist has improved his station in terms of access to a more upscale production team. Some of the songs remind one of Beck's country/funk, but White is more careful in his verbal phrasings, never allowing stream of consciousness to encroach on meaning.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

HANDCUFFED to a fence in Mississippi is not a usual place to begin an album. But then the last thing Jim White could be described is run of the mill. A former New York cab driver turned singer, his life fell apart after the release of his totally distinctive "One Eyed Jesus" debut. Happily now back on track, the string of producer credits hint that this was a tough album to make.
For the uninitiated, White is a very alternative country performer, combining modern effects with dark tales of Southern madness and religion. Some of the material here is heaven sent. For example White invests Corvair, a lullaby for a disused car, with all the sadness in the world. At his best, White's lyrics are miniature short stories to rival those of Southern writer Flannery O'Connor.
It does lose its way in the middle, but if you like adventurous roots music, you really should search this out.
