CRITIC REVIEWS

Consequence of Sound

Big Inner is a brilliant debut, brimming with homages to pop music’s past, whether it be Motown or Randy Newman.

musicOMH

Matthew E White and his Spacebomb house band have created a brilliant debut, one that will undoubtedly have artists queueing up to be a part of this newly established project.

Pitchfork

White's gift on Big Inner is taking sounds created by actual southerners and turning them into figments of his musical imagination, which he bends and shapes into bottomless columns of ethereal soul.

The 405

It's totally unafraid to recall tried & trusted musical styles and creative processes that many in trendy modern circles may dismiss as old practice.

NME

The 29-year-old summons the spirit of his namesake Barry; the sweet soul of Isaac Hayes; and Randy Newman’s contribution to the great American songbook to create a profoundly pleasing melange.
