Spacebomb supremo Matthew E White has joined forces with Lonnie Holley for a new “avant-garde southern folk record” entitled Broken Mirror: A Selfie Reflection, due out April 9 on Spacebomb/Jagjaguwar.

Hear a track from it, “This Here Jungle of Moderness/Composition 14”, below:


White recorded the music for Broken Mirror: A Selfie Reflection with a septet of musicians in 2018, as an experiment in “loose, gestural composition” akin to Miles Davis’ On The Corner. After backing Holley at a gig in Richmond, Virginia the following year, White played him some edits from those recordings. Holley quickly pulled out his notebooks and sung complete first takes to music he’d never heard.
