This White Man's Burden
Another dark, swirling masterwork, distilled from stains of Appalachian music and Beat Poetry, from the Nashville Undergound's favorite "barroom singer" (his words), TOM HOUSE. From traditional elements of hillbilly and old-time music (plus more dirty guitar distortion), House & Co. craft edgy rural soundscapes as backdrops to his stark, striking lyricism. Hard truths, unflinching realism, and well-deep pathos. When folks refer to Checkered Past as the Fat Possum of White Poeple, Tom House is the best of what they mean.
