'Rocket House'

Scott Aiges reviews Rocket House, the latest album from Chris Whitley. Whitley's debut album a decade ago was called a masterpiece in postmodern blues. On this record, he mixes songs that are firmly rooted in the blues with hypnotic futuristic sound effects. The highly stylized sound doesn't obscure the solid foundation of the songs, and Aiges says the album is both rootsy and experimental.
