ベドウィン(本名はアズニフ・コルケジアン)は、シリアのアルメニア人のファミリーに生まれ、サウジアラビア経由でアメリカにやって来た女性で、現在はエコー・パークのミュージシャンたちとも繋がっているLAのサウンドデザイナーだそう。ガス・セイファート(ベック、ザ・ブラック・キーズ)と組み、3年の歳月をかけてレコーディング(スモーキー・ホーメル(Tom Waits, Joe Strummer, Johnny Cash)も参加)、その音を携えて自らアプローチしたヴァージニア、リッチモンドのマシュウ・E・ホワイトのもとへ。メンフィス・ソウルや「ダスティ・イン・メンフィス」風のアプローチはマシュウ・E・ホワイト=Spacebombスタジオ・サウンドの十八番だけれど、とりわけトレイ・ポラード(Spacebombの作品の他、フォクシジェンの最新作『ハング』も)のストリングスのアレンジがスゴクスバラシイ。そしてカリフォルニアに戻ってミックスを仕上げたのがトム・モナハン(Pernice Brothers, Devendra Banhart, Vetiver)だったという、或る意味、理想的なルート。映像が脳裏に浮かぶようなカントリー・ソウルにレナード・コーエン、ジョニ・ミッチェル=ローレルキャニオンSSWの風趣も髣髴とさせるようで、もとてもウェルメイドな作品デス。

実は数年前に日本に滞在していたアンディ、現在はNYで活動中との由。

Matthew E. White – Big Love (from “Big Inner”)




“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

The Mountain Goats – Cry for Judas


“This here album track, anyway, is called “Cry for Judas,” it is about survival but that’s kind of an oversimplification, it’s also about building a vehicle from the defeated pieces of the thing you survived and piloting that vehicle through the cosmos, it’s kind of complicated but people who know what I’m talking about will kind of intuitively get the idea and the rest of you will I hope be able to get a sense of it through the song.”

Here’s the first single ‘Cry for Judas’ off of The Mountain Goats‘ forthcoming album, their fourteenth studio album “Transcendental Youth,” due out on October 2nd via Merge Records, also available around the same time via Tomlab (UK & Europe) and Moorworks (Japan). The album was produced by Portland, OR-based Brandon Eggleston (tUnE-yArDs, Miniature Tigers, Owen Pallett…), and Matthew E. White did horn arrangements. The single is available on iTunes, and for free download via Merge Soundcloud. “Transcendental Youth” pre-order, HERE.

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
