More Than Before

Conceived as an after-hours sojourn through his native New York City, T.H. White’s More Than Before evokes the celebrated acid jazz, downbeat, and trip-hop albums of the ’90s. While those records’languid grooves made them the music of choice for the era’s hip coffee bars, what saves this debut from meandering irretrievably toward sonic wallpaper is the instrumentation, catalyzed by live drums, funky guitars, and the occasional flute. Pleasant, though unexceptional.
