Matt White of Fight the Big Bull fame, will debut "Big Inner" on August 21st. The record is a joint release between Spacebomb Records and Hometapes. If you missed the pre-release 7'' a couple weeks ago, don't worry you can pre-order the LP record from Hometapes today.

All we can say is that it's real good. We're super stoked on this record. Be sure to check out the tune : "One of These Days" and read the reviews on Pitchfork and Stereogum.


White will be on tour with Mountain Goats and is playing in Richmond at the National, October 9th 2012!

Order the record, go to the concert, show your support.

 

 

A languid, snaking beat. A glowing trail of strings. Rising horns. Mournful get-it-on vocals. “One of These Days” is your calling card for Matthew E. White and your first taste of White's debut album "Big Inner." Backed with “Ain’t That What Love Is” (an exclusive gem featuring Phil Cook of Megafaun on keys), this 7” single is also your introduction to Spacebomb, a brand-new-big-little record label in Richmond, VA and a new branch on the Hometapes family tree.

A gentle, musical polymath, Matthew E. White radiates a passion for the history of harmony. He’s a vibrant, prodigious arranger. A hypnotizing performer. A guitar wizard. As a singer, White travels in the same pathways as Allen Toussaint and Randy Newman: modest, soulful, personal, and utterly confident. In these two magic tracks, you’ll begin to hear his wide orbit through sonic history and the clues to "Big Inner": New Orleans R&B, Curtis Mayfield, Terry Riley, Reggae, Sly Stone, Tropicalia, The Band, Harry Nilsson… Matthew E. White is his own timeline. 
Summer is coming. Matthew E. White also walks the earth as the leader of lauded avant-garde jazz band Fight the Big Bull and has released albums on Clean Feed & Fat Cat, performed around the country and collaborated with artists like Ken Vandermark, Steven Bernstein, Karl Blau, David Karsten Daniels, Megafaun, Sharon Van Etten and Justin Vernon.
