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. The second Tex La Homa album, "If Just Today Were To Be My Entire Life" was released on Talitres records for France and Europe and on Hydrid Electric Records in the USA, Canada and the UK. To support to this album, Tex La Homa toured in late 2003 and into 2004 taking in the USA, France, Spain, Germany, Denmark, Switzerland, England, Ireland and Scotland.. As well as these albums, Tex La Homa have released five fanstatically received EPs, two for Superglider Records, two for Moonpalace records, one for Acuarela, and appeared on compilation albums for Melodic (UK), Painted Sky Discs (Japan), Mind Expansion (USA),Foehn (Spain), Moonpalace Records (Spain) and Acuarela (Spain). The latest Tex La Homa release is a new album for & Records in Japan tiltled "Some Lost Bliss" which was released in December 2006, this will be getting a release in Europe and the USA very soon on All Is Number Records. Also released on Monday 12th Feb 2007 was a new limited edition ep for Milk & Moon Recordings called "Apport"
