Boomkat Product Review:
Continuing along the lavishly packaged path established by Ginnungagap, William Elliot Whitmore is the second artist to feature in the 'so limited you'll get earache' Latitudes series. In total contrast to the previous instalments pysch-filtered drone, William Elliot Whitmore makes music that sounds as if it's been soaked in bourbon for an extended period before escaping into the moonless night. With an almost religious (preacher) zeal, Whitmore brings together dark hearted country and swampy bluegrass to create an utterly submersive experience that combines Johnny Cash, Dan Tyminski and The Louvin Brothers. With names like 'Take It On The Chin' and 'The Prairie Yields to the Plow', William Elliot Whitmore may be in love with an Americana that no longer exists, but whilst you're in his company you'll be convinced you can smell the rawhide.
