Long time White Out supporter Brad Cohen of the New York Observer has included our new album with Nels Cline Accidental Sky on his Best Experimental Albums of 2015 list. Thanks Brad!! A really deep list so check it out. Cover photo is of Nels performing on a roof in Los Angeles.
Here are some links to a bunch of reviews for the new LP Accidental Sky. Thanks to everyone who listened!
“In a world where many will release countless recordings every year, the infrequency of White Out missives means they are something to be eagerly anticipated and cherished on arrival. Accidental Sky is both these things and more.” Free Jazz Collective
“Accidental Sky rolls and rumbles beautifully throughout its seven adventurous tracks… what impresses most is the overall interplay — these are musicians who are actually listening closely to one another, no matter how far out they go in their improvisations.” Other Music
“Wade into the haze and scramble your mind.” The Big Takeover
Thanks Jason Woodbury for this short feature about our new collaborative recording with Nels Cline.

White Out Q&A
Here are a couple of nice mentions for our Record Release show this Sunday.
Feb. 26: White Out celebrates the release of its subtle and powerful fifth album, “Asphalt and Delay.” Formed in 1995, this genre-defying duo—Tom Surgal, on percussion, and Lin Culbertson, on synthesizers, voice, and flute—is known for frequent collaborations with more prominent but equally adventurous musicians, such as Thurston Moore and Jim O’Rourke. The improvised songs on the record move seamlessly between richly textured, almost delicate moments and dense, noisy climaxes. For this show, the Swedish guitarist Anders Nilsson will be their guest. The gentle avant-blues guitar master Loren Connors opens.

White Out Record Release Show
Local experimental twosome White Out (composed of Tom Surgal and Lin Culbertson) offer this free evening of musicality at Zebulon in support of their latest album, Asphalt and Delay. The duo have an off-kilter sound that speaks to their anti-establishment roots—exactly the sort of thing you’d expect from the kinds of folks who’ve previously collaborated with the likes of Thurston Moore and Jim O’Rourke.
We are going to be guests on the Live Constructions show on WKCR. We will be playing some tracks off the new record Asphalt and Delay as well as other material including some boss live unreleased jams.
