137 

Rick White Album (Blue Fog)

Now going by the moniker Rick White Album, the former Eric's Trip/Elevator frontman's latest, 137, is another collection of psych-folk-rock that will astound in so many ways. Since Elevator disbanded, White's acoustic-guitar playing has become more technically virtuosic, with songs like "Eerieacquaintance" and "Back Home" being perfect examples of how he can play complex fingering so deftly. White's previous two releases, Album and Mamoreaper, focused more on acoustic showcasing than 137, which tends to dip back into flat-out psychedelic sound-structures (like the latter day Elevator-ish "Perception"), built around base-string riffs and synthesizer motifs. But as a next step in the constant evolution of his artistry, 137 is a masterwork---almost the perfect synthesis of Rick's growing mastery of the acoustic guitar and his singularly distinctive heavy, psychedelic side.
