We got a pick in the LA Weekly.

Last Minute Christmas Shopping?

Vinyl is back. I know because our album Accidental Sky is at both Target and Best Buy and available for ordering with NO SHIPPING! If there is an adventurous soul on your Christmas list maybe this is just the thing. The vinyl sounds incredibly detailed due in a large part to Paul Gold’s mastering no doubt.

A whole mess of press for our new LP “Accidental Sky”

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

Other Music has some nice words to say about the new release.

Vinyl out on 11/27. An invigorating free-rock workout from New York’s long-running White Out two piece and six-string wizard Nels Cline, Accidental Sky rolls and rumbles beautifully throughout its seven adventurous tracks. Noise lovers will be pleased: the album offers plenty of blistering guitar action, skittering drumkit attacks and clattering keyboards. But in the end, 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. And White Out and Cline also allow space for more introspective moments: dig the lovely flute line that wafts mysteriously in and out of “Under a Void Moon” or the graceful, calm closer “Soft Nameless Absolute.” (October 16, 2015)
