West Virginia White
Vinyl LP pressing. 2014 release from the Indie Rock outfit. For Tyler Travis (guitar, vocals), Caeleigh Featherstone (keyboards, vocals), John C. Fisher (bass), and Tayler Beck (drums) these things are real. Ohio boredom and isolation breeds certain tones in the music of WV White that shakes bones and melts away the conceptual percepts of what a rock band should be and sound like. Travis pounds riffs with a slack-jawed awe; Featherstone gilds them with bubbling organ drones; and the battery dances their own Spartan jig around it all. Rural voodoo. Attic rituals. Man vs. Man. Nature vs. ^#^nurture.
