The wonderful Southern Gothic, Athens-based singer/songwriter Jim White, returns with his sixth solo studio album – Waffles, Triangles & Jesus, a mind-bending joy ride of sonic influences.
Featuring a bevy of his hometown Athens’ roots musicians, plus west coast indie darlings Dead Rock West, and rock and roll maverick Holly Golightly, Jim White’s latest offering is a welcome collection to his eclectic, and positively uncategorisable albums.
Numerous songs from his back catalog have appeared both in film and television, with his Primus-esque Word-Mule being featured in Breaking Bad, and more recently his cautionary rocker Crash Into The Sun appearing in Ray McKinnon’s highly praised Sundance Channel series Rectify.
UK fans may recognize White as the narrator and defacto tour guide for the award winning BBC documentary, Searching for the Wrong Eyed Jesus, a road movie set in the rural South, which the LA Times described as “Decidedly strange, delightfully demented.”
“It’s clear that White’s bravery in baring his soul has resulted in a quiet masterpiece.” – Exlaim ★★★★
