Tex La Homa, en référence au roman de Douglas Coupland "Generation X", est le projet de Matt Shaw, songwriter, musicien et producteur anglais, ainsi que membre fondateur du label Superglider records.
Déja à l'origine d'une discographie fourmillante (un premier album "Dazzle Me With Transience" chez Superglider en Angleterre et Painted Sky Disc au Japon, trois EPs, et des apparitions dans diverses compilations), "If Just Today Were To Be My Entire Life" est le second long format de Tex La Homa.
Profondément cinématographique, la musique de Tex La Homa dévoile mélancolie, mêle chant (chuchotements) et distortions, guitares lo-fi et poudres électroniques.



UK based singer / composer / producer Matt Shaw records, in one of his guises, as Tex La Homa, a name lifted from Canadian author Douglas Coupland's 1991 novel "Generation X". Tex La Homa released their first album in 2002 in the UK and Japan in slightly differing versions both called "Dazzle Me With Transience". The LP blends Matt's half-whispered vocals with polychrome distortion, heart-breakingly pretty melodies, lo-fi guitars and massive, low-frequency electronics to create a sequence of chilled-out, cinematic ballads. As well as the debut album, Tex La Homa have released two fanstatically received EPs for Superglider Records and appeared on compilation album on Melodics (UK), Painted Sky Disc (Japan), Foehn (Spain) and Moon Palace Records (Spain).
The new Tex La Homa album, "If Just Today Were To Be My Entire Life" is to be released on Talitres records for France and Europe and on Hydrid Electric Records in the USA, Canada and the UK. It is Matt's best work to date.
