Jim White traveled many a junkyard road to get to TRANSNORMAL SKIPEROO. Raised in Pensacola, Florida, a town crushed between the church and heroin, Jim's songs reach deep into the underbelly of the South. Now living in an old farmhouse in the backwoods of Georgia, Jim White may have finally reached a place called home, but his other search, for what he calles "the gold tooth in God's crooked smile" continues in this new set of backyard tales. TRANSNORMAL SKIPEROO was produced by Joe Pernice and Michael Deming, recorded with the band Ollabelle, and also features tracks with Tucker Martine and Laura Veirs, local Georgia legend Don Chamgers & Goat, a bluegrass duo Jeff & Vida and percussionist Mauro Refosco. Jim White is a highly original voice in the immense Southern gothic tradition. When broken humanity aches for grace, music like his may give you a shot at redemption.
