White and the Packway Handle Band are mutual admirers, and when White stepped in to produce an album for the group, he brought along a set of bluegrass-influenced tunes he'd written.
The project turned into a co-starring effort, and the meet-up brings out the best in all parties concerned. While tunes like "Not a Song" and "Gravity Won't Fail" could easily sound grim given the downbeat tone of their lyrics, with the Packway Handle Band on hand, the songs have a beer-infused backyard charm that blesses them with a healing humanity, and conversely the rough edges of White 's lyrics on "Jim " and "Paranormal Girlfriend" sand off a bit of the band's good cheer and keep the songs from turning into novelty numbers.
The songs are lyrically and melodically straightforward compared to White 's best-known work, and while the band's accompaniment is full-bodied, it's also uncluttered and the musicians are limber and can step from the high spirits of "Corn Pone Refugee" to the doomstruck "Sorrow's Shine" with confidence and grace.
And if Take It Like a Man doesn't always sound ambitious or self-conscious, that plays to its advantage; White sounds as strong a singer and lyricist as ever, but with a casual tone Album) suggests a spontaneity that serves him well, and the slightly whacked-out string band approach of the Packway Handle Band is an inspired match for these songs.
