Rad new release from Hometapes
Summer is Coming: Introducing Matthew E. White, Big Inner, and a New Branch on the Hometapes Family Tree.
Today we declare the grand presence of Matthew E. White, a new addition to the Hometapes family. We announce his album, Big Inner, out August 21. We’re sharing the album’s first song and single, “One of These Days,” and revealing a limited-edition 7” record featuring that track and marking the beginning of our bond with Spacebomb, White’s Richmond, VA-based label. Today is a good day.
And so it begins with “One of These Days,” looking in, up, and over in its declarations of love. It’s waking up next to someone. It’s feeling the wood of the church pew on your back. This is your introduction to Matthew E. White; he’s convincing you to stay the night. You give me joy like a fountain deep down in my soul. You can hear him breathe in. The first time around, White only hums the chorus. Hums it. Plants it in your head as it blooms in his. Strings enter like a siren. The guitar only talks when it has something to say. The choir lets you know you’re not alone. Overdubbed woodwinds and muted brass like it on top, dancing around the embers of the bass line. Whether you’re a woman or man, White’s mournful, get-it-on voice may be all you can hear: I don’t want to live a day longer than you, so let’s meet the Lord together. You can call it soul music if you want. It’s his soul and it’s his music.
PRE-ORDER: Matthew E. White One of These Days 7”
