“Latham’s music is passionate with biting wit.”–NPR“Latham has come home, and Little Me Time exudes the comfort and vulnerability of a songwriter firmly on home soil.” – Corbie Hill, The Independent Weekly [11.2.16]Nearly a decade since leaving the Triangle to wander from Philadelphia to Nashville to Memphis to the U.K., singer-songwriter CHARLES LATHAM returned to North Carolina in late 2014, laying roots down in Durham where he began working on the songs that comprise his fourth full-length release. “Little Me Time”, slated for a January 2017 worldwide release, finds Latham recording outside of his home studio for the first time, enlisting an ensemble of local talent including multi-instrumentalist Omar Ruiz-Lopez (Violet Bell, Steph Stewart & the Boyfriends), Gordon Hartin(Kamara Thomas and The Night Drivers), Catherine Edgerton (Midtown Dickens), Stephen Mullaney and Christine Fantini (The Wigg Report), and more. The result is an album that stays true to Latham’s non-traditional songwriting while exploring new sonic territory, from Cosmic American psychedelia to lush, string-buoyed folk in the vein of Bryter Layter-era Nick Drake. His music is a lyric-heavy mixture of folk, pop, and country steeped in dark humor and social criticism, and he has been compared to artists as wide-ranging as Loudon Wainwright III and The Buzzcocks. Latham is most frequently associated with the “antifolk” genre and has been credited with bringing antifolk to The Triangle. He has deep ties to the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill region: he was a co-creator of the Antifolk SouthEast collective, which included local stalwarts Midtown Dickens and The Future Kings of Nowhere, and a principal organizer of the first (and only) annual antifolk festival. His strong connection to The Triangle had him returning regularly for performances in Durham, Chapel Hill, and to participate in the 2012 Hopscotch Music Festival.
