“Mr. White has both a literary streak and a crackpot imagination... he brings shards of Southernness, including plinking banjos and bluesy slide guitars, into surreal realms where they may collide with finger cymbals or hip-hop drumbeats ... His lyrics mix the calm fatalism of old country music with the fractured causality of Surrealism, while his arrangements set the words in a backwoods filled with electronic ghosts.”
-New York Times
“Sounding like a deranged hillbilly hipster, (part Gram Parsons, part Jack Kerouac), White makes creepy music deluxe.” -popmatters.com
“Faded church bells, muted sirens, insect noises, white noise, rickety turntable scratching, and electronic beats take “alternative” country music to places it’s never been before.” or “...at times gothic, at times
bizarre, and at times, absolutely stunning.” -Stylus Magazine
