Iowa's singer-songwriter William Elliott Whitmore surfaced with the gloomy documentary-style trilogy of Hymns for the Hopeless on Southern (2003), Ashes to Dust, also on Southern (2005) and Song of the Blackbird (2006) with a spartan acoustic sound (solo banjo or guitar) that unabashedly borrowed from the folk music of a century earlier. The much more lightweight and political Animals In The Dark (2009) is less skeletan and more soulful, notably Old Devils.

That breakthrough led to the wisdom and (introverted) erudition of Field Songs (2011), notably the touching Bury Your Burdens In the Ground and the witty Let's Do Something Impossible.
