Finally got my ass in gear, made a new post, and then my browser shut down! But I'm a trooper-so here we go again-

Blanche ("Gothic indie-country-folk medicine show revivalists") plays haunting, melancholy, gorgeous Americana. NME calls the album "a strange and beautiful delight" and Vanity Fair labeled it "sparkling, elegant, and smart." If the Cure ran smack into Townes Van Zandt, is what I'm thinking right now. You probably saw frontman Dan John Miller in Walk the Line as Luther Perkins, with his wife Tracee as Perkin's wife Birdie. Little Jack Lawrence (the Raconteurs, the Greenhornes) recently joined the band, and Jack White, who was in a band with Miller, appears on track 8.
It's a collection of near-spooky gothic country-blues, dirges for sanity and laments for optimism wrapped in reverb, banjos, autoharp, pedal steel, and dank Poe atmospherics. Led X-ishly by the husband and wife duo of Dan and Tracee Mae Miller, Blanche plays old-timey Midwestern twang with one foot in authenticity and the other in well-versed satire.
If you like it, buy it! And check out the new EP in October and the new album early next year (nowhere near soon enough). I hope they swing by NY, would love to catch them live.

And grab all the PiL you'll need at PunchDrunk! And Direction Reaction Creation (5 discs of the Jam) from All Night Thing!

Joe Strummer!
