White Man at the Door
\"White Man at the Door\" follows the legendary Shytone \"Dead Set,\" a compendium of pre-war inspired clssics compiled by Lost Domain mainman, John Henry Calvinist (aka David Mac Kinnon), and much beloved by none other than John Fahey. These six tracks are like nothing else the group has released. Ragtime Frank (aka Simon Ellaby) puts in the vocal performance of a lifetime as he extracts songs like \"In My Time of Dying\" and \"Frankie & Albert\" from deep inside his bones. Over an archaic bed of acoustic instrumentation and junkyard percussion, Ellaby belts out gut-wrenching line after gut-wrenching line. It will bring listeners to their knees.
The pre-war inspirations behind these tracks are obvious, but the execution and emotion is 100% authentic. \"White Man at the Door\" is a lost relic. It\'s like something found in a dusty corner of the Library of Congress, begging to be rediscovered. This is the kind of album that most bands only dream of making. It is pure, whiskey-addled perfection.
