"Enormously urgent remastered and repackaged repress/reissue for this much buzzed about record that tragically went out-of-print just as demand was erupting. Includes la bonus track, 'Robotic Arms.' Armed with little more than an acoustic guitar and her fragile alto, San Francisco folk singer/songwriter Emily Jane White offers complex tales of melancholy and isolation. While comparisons to contemporaries like Cat Power and Hope Sandoval are frequent, Emily's music owes a clear debt to classic female jazz and blues singers such a Billie Holiday. The lead track 'Bessie Smith' from her debut Dark Undercoat is an homage to the influential legend. 'Wild Tigers I Have Known,' from Dark Undercoat, appeared on the soundtrack for the Cam Archer film of the same title and Rolling Stone recently placed Emily in their top 5 Hot List in which they describe the aforementioned song as 'melancholy as a rainbow glimpsed through the bars of a prison window.'"
