"Over the course of three albums of original music with the band Appendix Out and a pair of albums under his own name, Scotsman Alasdair Roberts has been moving toward a purer understanding, exploration and interpretation of the traditional song of the British Isles. No Earthly Man shouldn't be regarded as a culmination of this exploration: this is Roberts' music, something he'll be fiddling with for the rest of his days. However, this new album comes with some sense of finality, part of which may have to do with its focus -- a set comprised entirely of death ballads. Recorded near the whisky distilleries of rural Aberdeenshire and mixed amid the tobacco fields of Kentucky, No Earthly Man benefits from the playing and perspective of a diversity of musicians, and from the production talents of honorary Scot Will Oldham."
