His unsettling songs mix the traditional folk and gospel of his Kentucky childhood with a decidedly untraditional avant-garde, downtown New York City stance. The artist uses his power to tell modern folk tales of conversations with corpses, of crazed women in rain-swept truck stops, and of men who calmly wait on riverboats to be shot. So rich a listening experience, you will surely find new nuances of meaning after months of playing this CD.
