Matthew E. White, ‘One of These Days’ – Free MP3 Download
Matthew E. White dropped into the music world this year with a big beard, big hair, a single called 'Big Love' and a big sound. His debut album, 'Big Inner,' popped out fully-formed with what sounds like decades-old wizened Americana, as if it could have been released any time between 1974 and now and been equally well-received at any point along the way. Today we get a free download of 'One of These Days,' one of the album's gems.
"It's American music, a gentleman’s psychedelia from the New World," White tells Diffuser.fm about his distinctive sound. "From a conceptual angle I think it compares closest to Tropicalia, a Brazilian genre that drew as much from Brazilian folk music as it did from 20th century classical composers. There is a very unique balance of 'low' and 'high' culture in the production of those records that is really special."
'Big Inner' is a really special record, and 'One of These Days' is one of our favorites. Grab it for free download below, and watch out for 'Big Inner,' which drops today on Spacebomb Records.
