In late ‘09, Chris Mathien stepped into the Booth with The Definition, an eclectic record which found the singer/songwriter defying those who would try and slap a label on his style. Nearly a year later, we’re happy to announce that the Chi-town native’s stuck to his guns… far from settling into any convenient box, Mathien sounds as confidently nonconformist as ever on the newly-leaked Spread. While the steamy theme and falsetto chorus momentarily brought me back to the Andre 3k joint that shares its title (my favorite off The Love Below), this cut’s overall feel is fresh and original; over a backdrop of squelching bass, downtempo percussion and strummed guitar chords, the artist waxes poetic about the joys of getting a little something-something in the early-AM hours, delivering verses that are equal parts poetically lofty (“You’re more than love, you’re more than God.”) and down-to-earth (“It’s six in the morning, I don’t care that we both got bad breath.”) Does this left-of-center bedroom burner put you in the mood to… listen to more new tunes from Chris Mathien? Then you’re in luck – there will be more Mathien leaks to follow.
