The Charlatans are no strangers to loss. Keyboardist Rob Collins died during
the recording of their 1997 masterwork Tellin’ Stories, and 17 years later
they lost founding member Jon Brookes to brain cancer. His absence hangs over
2015′s Modern Nature, the first record the band has made since Brookes’
diagnosis in 2010, but the Charlatans aren’t the sort to dwell in darkness.
Tim Burgess alludes to the drummer’s presence on the album’s opening “Talking
in Tones” but Modern Nature soon settles into a nicely worn soulful groove, a
sound that suggests the group gains strength through the therapy of playing
music. Happily, this emphasis on soul gives Modern Nature a different
character than Who We Touch, the nifty 2010 LP where they dabbled in different
sounds while retaining a solid song foundation. Due to its soulful
undercurrents, this feels more unified than Who We Touch and also
contemplative, a record designed not for the black depth of night but the
sepia tones of twilight. Much of this haziness derives from the shimmering
production, a sound that’s mellow without succumbing to laziness. It’s a nice
fit for cleverly retrofitted ’70s soul grooves like “Tall Grass,” but it also
suits the handful of songs like “Come Home Baby” and “So Oh” that echo the
Charlatans’ early Madchester swirl. By incorporating these offhand allusions
to the past while being firmly planted in a mature present, Modern Nature
showcases a band whose members are aware of where they’ve been and grateful
for what they have.

Matthew E. White is a devoted Stevie Wonder disciple, and also a devoted
do-it-yourselfer. Accordingly, the aesthetic for his Spacebomb record label
and studio is “DIY” in the ’70s auteur sense, not in the punk-rock sense. In
interviews, the Richmond, Virginia-based jazz studies alum often name-checks
the likes of Marvin Gaye and Randy Newman. “There’s not some punk-rock version
of Stevie Wonder,” White told Grantland. “Stevie Wonder is deep music, on a
lot of levels.”
White’s first album under his own name, 2012′s Big Inner, contemplated Big
Ideas — love, death, God — in an opulent setting of analog-era soul and
down-home psychedelia, brimming with horns and strings. Recent Spacebomb
projects, including the radiant 2015 self-titled debut of former Jenny Lewis
backing singer Natalie Prass, have followed suit. Fresh Blood, White’s
sophomore album, mostly stays true to the house style, improving on Big Inner
in some ways, falling short in others, but never less than fully engaged in
the notion of music as a higher ground.
A highlight on Big Inner was “Will You Love Me”, a Jimmy Cliff-quoting
slow-burner that gracefully balanced intimacy and studio craft. Fresh Blood
refines this mix of cozy and majestic, with tracks spiraling out from just
Fender Rhodes piano and hushed vocal to luxuriant codas replete with backup
singers and ingeniously unfurling instrumental counterpoint. From the canopy
of vibrant harmonies on “Fruit Trees” to the earthy guitar licks of “Golden
Robes”, the music feels both familiar and resplendent. White’s mellow, M.
Ward-like coo, occasionally patchy on Big Inner, is honeyed and smooth here.
Lyrically, he builds on the themes of his debut and 2013′s Outer Face EP. The
stormy “Holy Moly” echoes a line from the EP’s “Eyes Like the Rest”, about the
perils of hope, before building to its mantra: “Fuck ‘em all, love is home,
home is love, love is all.” (According to NPR, the song is inspired by sexual
abuse in the church, though you wouldn’t necessarily know it.) Opener “Take
Care My Baby” reiterates some words about the human touch from the EP’s “Hot
Hot Hot”.
White’s view of love and music remains decidedly spiritual: Big Inner’s
finale, “Brazos”, for instance, climaxed in a stirring but ambivalent gospel
chant of “Jesus Christ is our Lord, Jesus Christ, He is your friend”. White
relies on religious language much less here: When he calls upon Jesus on Fresh
Blood’s “Circle ‘Round the Sun”, it’s of a piece with the same song’s use of
the Dylan-evoking phrase “shelter from the storm.”
At times, White’s knack for simplicity lapses into the slightly generic. On
“Take Care My Baby”, he confides, “I never met another one like you before/
Talking all night long/ From the midnight on,” and I mostly want to know what
they were up so late talking about. A similar case is “Feeling Good Is Good
Enough”, which begins a compelling story about a couple who “didn’t make it”
rekindling their flame by going home together for the night, but ends with
fairly rote “Hey Jude”-like repetitions.
Elsewhere, White overreaches slightly. The poetic, dissonance-streaked hymn
“Tranquility” was written as a tribute to Philip Seymour Hoffman, but it’s
forbiddingly cryptic. And White’s wry rock crit on first single “Rock & Roll
Is Cold” creates an interesting tension with the song’s spacey euphoria—think
Spiritualized vamping the Velvet Underground’s “I’m Waiting for the Man”—but
never quite coheres. Sure, the power of music is mysterious, but when you to
try to sort out why his narrator specifically defines rock’n’roll as “cold”,
R&B as “free”, and gospel as a “gift”, or ponder how those categories might
overlap… well, the power of music is mysterious.
Those are small criticisms, though, and if you focus on the sumptuous sound of
Fresh Blood they become easier to overlook. White addresses his musical
ancestors directly on closer “Love Is Deep”, asking, “Ain’t it so, Marvin?/
Ain’t it so, Stevland?” Gaye and Wonder (whom White pointedly addresses by his
birth name) alike would probably affirm his argument —that “love is deep
