- One Of These Days by Matthew E. White
1 review. Add your own review.
This is a curious single. I’m not familiar with Matthew E White’s work but on this 7” he’s got a whispery soul/r’n’b number ‘One of These Days’ with understated strings and brass and a warm boomy stop-start bassline. It’s like classic Motown soul or early Bee Gees psych-pop but performed by a man so world-weary he can barely elevate his voice above a whisper. I think he may have been listening to too much Lee Hazlewood.
On the other side is ‘Ain’t That What Love Is’, with more weary vocals but this time accompanied by a somewhat jaunty piano line. It’s kind of like how I would imagine the results of a collaboration between Sparklehorse and Randy Newman to sound. He’s certainly got a really classic style of songwriting, and a great ear for these restrained but intuitive-sounding arrangements which sound totally timeless, like it’s some recently unearthed private press gem from the ‘60s or ‘70s. Absolutely lovely.
