10 Songs, 35 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

There’s always been a raucous rock n’ roll heart deep within William Elliott Whitmore’s work. This is despite the fact that previous albums feature him solo on guitar or banjo singing about working the land and weathering hard times. A third of Radium Death follows this stripped-down pattern. But the remaining songs are a revelation. Backed by a hard-driving band on drums, electric guitar, bass, and keyboards for six songs, his rough and ragged voice takes on added power on the highlights “Healing to Do,” “Don’t Strike Me Down,” and “Ain’t Gone Yet.” The blending of these approaches makes this his most exciting release yet.
