Matthew E. White


The guitarist-founder of Richmond, Virginia, slipstream jazz combo Fight the Big Bull has morphed into a ’70s channeling blue-eyed soul singer—a bearish, white Barry White, if you will. His solo debut was one of last year’s best, and his nine-piece group stirs together gospel, reggae, and yacht rock into a sweet haze. Ecuador-born Roberto Lange’s solo project Helado Negro delivers distant and rather abstract electronics con vocals.
