While the image of Jim White suggest another alt-country troubador, the sound of this record is something very different. He mixes almost ambient sounding dance with country and rock, to produce a record unlike anything else you will hear. His lyrics combine strange surreal observations with humorous comments on life and religion ('god was drunk when he made me'). All in all, highly recommended.

Jim White is not so much a musician as a storyteller who weaves odd, oblique and original soundtracks. He is a completely obvious "shoe in" to be on David Bryne Luaka Bop label and is in this reviewers humble opinion has produced the greatest music from that quirky stable of artists. It was hardly surprising when British director Andrew Douglas wanted to make a road movie about the Deep South and its spiritual roots he choose White to be his tour guide. The BBC film "Searching for the Wrong-Eyed Jesus" taps into that part of the south of which White is one of its most acute observers. It is that strange world of "white trash" trailer parks, small-town Southern preachers, roadside cafe's called "Where Jesus Is Lord Truckstop Diner", sweet maganolia, whistling freight trains and that deep Southern Gothic which shows like "True Blood" have fed off in their own version of vampire led inspiration. One of White's best songs is entitled "If Jesus Drove a Motor Home" it speaks volumes.

"No such Place" released in 2001 is by the length of U.S. 171 corridor road in West Louisiana the best album that White has produced, although you grow to love them all and on another day a good case could be made for "Drill a Hole in That Substrate and Tell Me What You see". NSP starts with the wonderful "Handcuffed to a fence in Mississippi" a tale of full a poor victim of crime whose Trans am has gone AWOL. It is absolutely infectious with its images of stigmata's and motels. Next up is "The wound that never heals" one of the great rolling murder ballads but with a typical White twist namely that the song is about a murderess who is a victim of abuse, thereby White turns her into a heroine and feels her pain when he states -

She runs from devils. She runs from angels.

As someone not normally entranced by C & W, I love this record. Jim White has produced an accessible, engaging mix of alt.country, electro beats and beautiful songwriting on No Such Place. He is an undiscovered gem of an artist with a dry humour, perfectly suited to this material. Standout tracks are Handcuffed to a Fence... , 10 Miles to Go... and the haunting Corvair. Jim has reverted to a more traditional southern country sound on more recent albums - I wish he had continued to mine this particular seam.

On first listening I didn't think that this was as good as the excellent debut album 'Wrong-eyed Jesus'. How wrong can you get! 'No Such Place' is every bit as good if not better than WEJ. This is such a rewarding album that uncovers a fresh gem with every listening. From the first to last track, JW expounds his wondrously off-kilter view of life , first explored on WEJ.
My current favourite track is 'Ghost town of my brain' but as there is so much to choose from this changes on a daily basis...
A wonderfully inventive album , chock full of various styles and ideas and a superb progression from the first album. If you get the chance to see Jim live - do so, you will not be disappointed.
Without doubt ,my album of the year. BUY IT!
