Denise James' voice may just be Detroit's greatest untapped natural resource. Not that James has hidden herself away -- quite the contrary, actually. She's the voice behind the greviously underappreciated Dirteaters and has appeared on numerous His Name Is Alive recordings. But James has stepped out on her own with music that's simultaneously intercontinental (in the Serge Gainsbourg sense) and decidedly Midwestern (in the high lonesome northwoods sense).
