Muze PNote Jim White's sophomore release on David Byrne's Luaka Bop imprint comes four years after the release of Wrong-Eyed Jesus!, an album that introduced him as a quirky, yet clever master of Southern gothic storytelling and lo-fi folk music. No Such Place is a brilliant follow-up and reveals White at his best. It's a bluesy, atmospheric-laced collection of songs about loners, ghosts, devils, love, and angels. Well skilled at providing listeners with a detailed look into his psyche, White simultaneously, and almost undetectably, provokes introspection throughout the album's 13 tracks. His songwriting is best exhibited when the album flows between gentle, dark, and spacy tunes like "Corvair" and "The Wrong Kind of Love," to all-out stompers like "10 Miles to Go on a 9 Mile Road," "Handcuffed to a Fence in Mississippi," and his unique cover of Roger Miller's "King of the Road." No Such Place is a classic storytelling affair. Continuing to draw from a lifetime's worth of experiences, including stints as a religious fanatic, drug addict, taxi driver, fashion model, and professional surfer, White generously offers up a collage of deeply personal thoughts and feelings. Although comparable to Beck's Mutations and Shawn Mullins' Beneath the Velvet Sun, No Such Place breaks new ground by pairing White's unique lyrical twists and vocal stylings with the slick production of Morcheeba, Sweetback co-founder and Sade musician Andrew Hale, DJ/producer Q-Burns Abstract Message, and Sohichiro Suzuki (formerly of Yellow Magic Orchestra and currently with World Standard). The result is a cohesive effort that's bold, bizarre, and beautiful. His tales, often witty and dipped in irony, stream underneath samples of crickets, howls, sirens, whistles, and an ample filling of ambient clings and clangs. White is a master of exposing his world, while singing the majority of his songs under the guise of a third-person narrator. Combining banjos, harmonicas, and jaw harps with thick lo-fi beats, record scratches, and samples, No Such Place is an exciting and fresh collection of music. Add to the mix White's tongue-in-cheek storyteller talents and the result is a strong album that proves that he's closer to finding peace with his past and optimistic about the journey ahead. ~ Don Kline

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone (3/15/01, p.81)
- 3.5 stars out of 5 - "...These tracks ground themselves in White's flawless songcraft - melodies, hooks and choruses that are instantly memorable...freshened up by hip-hop beats and swirling atmospherics....transports the listener to the imagination's outskirts..."

Entertainment Weekly (3/9/01, p.83)
- "...Gothic folktales inspired by fire-and-brimstone religion, freedom-promising highways, and broken-down cars..." - Rating: B

Q (3/01, p.113)
- 3 stars out of 5 - "...Beatmasters Morcheeba and Sade's Andrew Hale give White and his cast of oddballs and ne'er-do-wells a multi-layered contemporary sheen....A few more crunching melodies and he would be genuinely flying, but this will most certainly do."

Alternative Press (2/02, p.65)
- Ranked #11 in AP's "25 Best Albums of 2001" - "...an American treasure..."

Magnet (4-5/01, p.91)
- "...Long on urban beats and electronic effects...The settings and imagery...remain straight out of the Southern gothic tradition and in the very human scale of hand-to-mouth living..."

CMJ (2/12/01, p.24)
- "...Rural rock from outer space..."

Mojo (Publisher)
(2/01, p.94)
- "...Caustic country and slinky white funk, with acoustic guitars, banjos, synths and samples, and a vocal warping from Will Oldham at his most affecting to Johnny Dowd at his most pathological..."
