This is the debut Yep Roc release from Jim White. Where It Hits You is as rich and diverse a record as Jim has ever produced. From the brooding dreamlike opener, 'Chase The Dark Away,' to the wild eyed stomp of 'Here We Go,' to the Beefheart-esque 'Infinite Mind,' to the Harvest-era Neil Young ringer 'My Brother's Keeper.'
Where It Hits You finds Jim in full musical stride, effortlessly blending genres and approaches in ways that sometimes boggle the mind. But as White's work has shown over the arc of his career, despite the experimental extremes he recklessly embraces, there's always a cohesive, singular identity that holds the divergent influences together.
