Iowa's singer-songwriter William Elliott Whitmore surfaced with the
gloomy documentary-style trilogy of
Hymns for the Hopeless on Southern (2003),
Ashes to Dust, also on Southern (2005) and
Song of the Blackbird (2006)
with a spartan acoustic sound (solo banjo or guitar) that unabashedly borrowed from the folk music of a century earlier.
The much more lightweight and political
Animals In The Dark (2009) is less skeletan and more soulful,
notably Old Devils.
That breakthrough led to
the wisdom and (introverted) erudition of
Field Songs (2011), notably the
touching Bury Your Burdens In the Ground and the witty
Let's Do Something Impossible.
