Reliably informed

In the midst of writing his third solo record, Spacebomb founder and prolific virtuoso Matthew E. White is venturing to Newcastle’s Think Tank? on Saturday 21st October to test his works-in-progress before he unleashes them out into the great unknown.

If his track record is anything to go by, expect some absolutely visceral and gorgeous pieces of music that take the finest aspects of only the finest music and synthesise them together to create bold and unforgettable slices of wonder. 2015’s Fresh Blood and 2013’s Big Inner are both bold records that merge the sounds that once emerged from Muscle Shoals with modern minimalism and a brilliantly dark and witty way with words that brings to mind the finest troubadours of yesteryear.

Despite these mid-20th century touchstones, White’s music is innovative, brash and brilliantly unique. It’s rather surprising that a musician of his stature is choosing to play a venue as intimate as Think Tank?, and I guarantee this will be the final chance you’ll ever get to see this force of nature in such close quarters. Essential.
