For those of you who have been longing for that type of experimentation, which Lampchop majored upon in their greatest album "Nixon" (2000) then your search is complete. On this new album "Big Inner", out of the corner of some dark studio emerges 29 year musician Matthew E White who takes country, soul and R&B and serves them up in a big old stew which Kurt Wagner would warmly applaud. He uses the label "Blue Eyed Soul" and it is an intoxicating confection of sweet sounds and farm house spirituals played a big musical collective of musicians straining like greyhounds at the start to get going. White is a session musician by trade but more than this he has his own Spacebomb Records imprint and intends to use this with vision. Thus he harks back to the days of Stax records, has a recording studio in Richmond Virginia and a house band, with the idea being that artists signed to Spacebomb will utilise all these musical facilities including the session players on the spot.

On the evidence of "Big Inner" he has chosen his musical comrades, including a full horn and string section, with real care. They produce an album which has first class honours written all over it. It includes seven tracks all anchored by White's soulful almost spoken vocal and the sort of backdrop which labels like Stax and the Muscle Shoals studio in Alabama used to patent. Opener "One of these days" sets a groove with a big rolling bass to provide the architecture but is never showy or booming. It relies on the growing rumble of horns, the interjection of the an occasional soulful guitar and White's slowly unfolding vocal teasing the song to its almost Southern gospel conclusion.

This is a proper album, like albums used to be back when they were good!
What do I mean by that?
Well, this album represents a level of accomplishment and craftsmanship that is sorely lacking from much of contemporary music. This is not some hipster warbling in their bedroom to a guitar they can't play properly, all bunged through some plug-ins they downloaded for free. The skill and musicianship is evident from the first bars... and the fact it was all recorded in a single 2 week session belies the real achievement here.
The songs are sweet and soulful, tinged with a touch of old-timey Gospel faith. The arrangements and production are impeccable. It's not the style of music I generally seek out or listen to, but the overall effect is jaw-dropping.
This is music that achieves that most difficult and ephemeral of goals - it genuinely makes you feel something.
What you feel is, of course, up to you, but I defy you to be left cold by it.
It's very contemporary to chatter about whether the album format is dead in this modern world of cherry picking individual tracks, but a work like this one just confirms why the album is still the best way for an artist to present their music. The sustained effect and atmosphere over 40-odd minutes is cumulative.
Just buy it and enjoy it before it gets inevitably ruined by overexposure on some stupid ad or something.
Quality!

I bought thus purely on the strength of the reviews and while it has it's moments I've never really taken to it. The arrangements are nice but the whole thing feels so soporific at times it feels like it's going to collapse under it's own laid backness. I find his incredibly mannered vocal style gets wearying very quickly and it just sounds like an inferior retread of something like Dr John, without really bringing anything new to the party.
Despite me praising the arrangements I wonder if this would have worked better if it had been a bit more sparse and direct sounding. At times it's like wading through aural treacle-White doesn't sound like he can stay awake and I had difficulty doing the same while listening.
Big Love however is ace and the standout moment of this album by a country mile.
