11 Songs, 45 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

The debut from Australian crooner Matt Corby is a richly orchestrated throwback to the warm, whimsical grooves of the ‘70s, right down to the flute solos. Slinking through fluttering organs one minute (“Belly Side Up”), then quavering over smoky piano pop the next (“Wrong Man”), Corby’s voice is a honey-soaked baritone that’s unafraid to reach for both the high and low notes (dig his nearly subsonic coo on “We Could be Friends”). The music is equally ambitious, strutting between lush soul, sexy R&B, and spacey funk. Think Marvin Gaye by way of James Blake.

Matt Corby- Telluric

I have to say that I am very impressed. I have been a fan of Matt for a long time and I loved his older music. When I heard Soothe Lady Wine for the first time, I was a bit worried. I thought Matt's old style suited him perfectly. I like the new song, but I don't think anything can compare to Resolution, Brother, Runaway, etc. With the new album finally out I have to admit that I am loving the new feel that he is bringing. There is not much music out there that sounds like this. It is very original and mysterious and I'm excited to see where Matt Corby goes next.
