Dog Rose Gall is the long overdue follow up record to 2008's White Sunrise. Consisting of songs written between 2007-2010, this dark and moody offering is Whitman's most ambitious release. Hauntingly dissonant strings provided by Ezra Buchla (viola) and Richard Seymour (cello) drive many of these tracks giving Whitman more room to explore stark, poetic, vocal stylings. The track list itself shifts from being part emotional turmoil and part romantic whimsy, with the sporadic percussion by Corey Marc Fogel complimenting Whitman's unique guitar playing in the most organic way. Produced by Ezra Buchla.
