Artist: WHITE, RALPH
Title: Boundless
Format: LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Ralph White, ex-fiddler for the legendary Austin, TX country-punk band, The Bad Livers, gives us a newly recorded collection of American and Caribbean songs, plus one original. Ralph is a truly inspirational folk artist. His music could be described as "psychedelic", but only in the way that his voice cuts straight through your psyche into the very heart of your being, melting away all resistance. No, really, its that powerful. Whites voice soars mournfully over interlocking banjo and kalimba parts that are firmly rooted in traditional Americana, but belie the influences he garnered on his cross continental African bike trip." - Feeding Tube

Artist: WHITE, RALPH
Title: Waltz Dont Run
Format: LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"This album represents a particularly whacked-out session for the peripatetic Austinite Ralph White, who is renowned for many things. Not the least of which is the fact that hes one of the few men who Michael Hurley will join on tour. Its no small thing? Most of Whites fantastic solo output makes use of his multi-instrumentalism, often with a focus on his violin or banjo playing. Here, however, Mr. White focuses exclusively on button accordion and a variety of songs that can be done in waltz-time, regardless of whether they were first planned as waltzes or not. He says that the concept first came to him when he was recording a waltz version of "Sweet Jane" for a Lou Reed tribute album. The impulse to continue creating in this vein seized him and he seized it back. The results are shockingly great. One is used to hearing such stuff done with thick English accents, bad teeth and a scholastic attitude. Whites approach is rural, American and a bit strange. The overall feel is actually more like Hurley than anything else Ralph has done, even though the sonic similarities are vague at best. A very cool record by any standard. And ours are fucking high, champ. Enjoy." --Byron Coley, 2014; includes download code. Edition of 300.

Title: Mongrels Hoard
Format: LP
Label: Monofonus Press
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"A beautiful recording cementing RALPH WHITEs unique position in the unfolding history of so-called "roots music." His banjo, kalimba, fiddle, accordion, and high-lonesome drawl create a drone-like, somewhat psychedelic folk language. Limited to 300 hand-screened copies, with art by TIM KERR." -Monofonus Press

Title: Navasota River Devil Squirrel
Format: LP
Label: Mystra
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Ralph White of Austin, TX has been a part of the more forward-moving country-blues activities of this planet for quite some time. From his work & endless touring with Bad Livers to his duets with Amy Annelle in the outfit Precious Blood, Mr. White has shown that he is of the intuitive and insightful ilk that can pick n shred beyond the earthly. As you may suspect, few documents have appeared that demonstrate his powers and poetries as a soloist, where he is only peered with the most revered. Armed with fiddle, fretless banjo, kalimba, & button accordion, and his subtle and magnificent new high lonesome croon, we are brought to a rare mirror. Yet another place where borders are erased and music is the only language. An intense & visionary outsider, for sure. This record is a reissue of his first CD-R. It should surprise and win over even the most cynical record-hording ogre. A co-operative effort by Mystra & Spirit Of Orr, 600 copies total, hand-glued cover art." -Mystra
