Expect small surprises from this oddball singer-songwriter. Jim White's atmospheric, folk-based arrangements are a stew of American music—Beck and Grandaddy are good, though slightly off-base comparisons—soundtracking offbeat storytelling. Though White's sometimes goofy and occasionally just plain weird, his serious, ruminative work is hauntingly beautiful. The South Memphis String Band opens, teaming a trio of Mississippi-rooted boys—Grammy-winning country bluesman Alvin Youngblood Hart, former Squirrel Nut Zipper leader and Buddy Guy sideman Jimbo Mathus and guitarist Luther Dickinson of the Black Crowes and North Mississippi Allstars—who tackle gospel, Delta blues, jug band tunes and, of course, traditional string band numbers. —Spencer Griffith
