“Star Over,” a Hometapes holiday album
FREE (at its bandcamp) with the option to DONATE any amount to Smallwater and their efforts to rebuild the Rockaway, NY community in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy.

Thirty-five tracks that travel through time, space, and the past few years of Hometapes holiday albums, Star Over is the music we’re listening to as we close our eyes, grab your hand, and step off the cliff edge of 2012. Juxtaposed in new ways — and including brand new additions by Chris Rosenau (also of Collections of Colonies of Bees & Volcano Choir), The Caribbean (a collaboration with Insect Factory), Keith Sunset (also of CYNE), and Sunless (Hometapes’ own Adam Heathcott) — these songs are the recipe for the sunrise and sunset of the hardest and best year of our lives. –Hometapes

Matthew E. White – Big Love

Matthew E White – One Of These Days

Richmond, VA based Matthew E. White’s self-produced solo debut LP “Big Inner” is set to co-release on August 21st via Hometapes / Spacebomb. A gifted jazz arranger and exceptional guitarist, White is already known as a leader of Fight the Big Bull, 9-piece jazz collective from Richmond, VA., they collaborated with artists like Ken Vandermark, Steven Bernstein, Karl Blau, and also teamed up with Megafaun, Justin Vernon and Sharon Van Etten to pay tribute to Alan Lomax at Duke University’s “Sounds of the South” concert in 2010.  The opening track for the album, ‘One of These Days’ will be released on a limited 7″ (b/w ‘Ain’t That What Love Is’ featuring Phil Cook of Megafaun on keys) due out on July 24th, pre-order is available now, HERE

“On that day in August, when the earth shifted into the shape of Matthew E. White, there was so much to listen to, so much to put your heart into, already. The dusts of the Delta had swirled into Rock and Roll. Alan Lomax’s recordings sat in a big building in Washington, DC. Lee Perry had built The Black Ark in his backyard in Kingston. Somebody else lived in Big Pink. Mac Rebennack was Dr. John. King Tubby was dubbing. Terry Riley was overdubbing. Sly Stone had hit #1. Randy Newman’s Sail Away was a decade old. Caetano Veloso had just turned 40. Muddy Waters was just about gone. Jimmy Cliff had had sung “Many Rivers to Cross.” So had Harry Nilsson. White shared this common inheritance. He stitched his own flag out of it.” –Hometapes
