The title of singer/ songwriter William Elliot Whitmore’s second release for Anti connects him to the Lomax tradition of recording authentic American music at the source. And truly, one song into this brilliant, intense album of new folk songs, and it’s clear that Alan Lomax would have been overjoyed to capture Whitmore’s music on his family’s farm in Lee County, IA. Armed with a banjo, a bass drum, and a voice that channels the late Ted Hawkins, Whitmore is a new blues master.
