‘hula’ is one of my fav songs of the year so far. whole ep is good too

New EP is incredible, really soothing sophistipop that's been a great calm over the past few weeks.

Also "Blue Pedro" is just the best

big fan of the stuff he's done with laura groves - 'freedom of the floor' by nautic, laura's solo records

Loving the new EP. Had no idea Nautic was him & Laura Groves

That "Only Over You" Fleetwood Mac cover Nautic did for the Deek covers comp was amazing, IMO

Hula is great but “We had a good time” is the highlight for me. Love those drums.

I don’t know if it’s been discussed in other threads but his covers are worth listening to and the “pop not slop” ongoing list in which he invites guests and himself to post what they consider perfect pop songs:

Can we rename this thread to bullion / westerman? At this point, Bullion's involvement and influence is such that it could almost be considered a duo.

Anyways, there's not a Westerman thread, and I don't think there would be much participation so I wont be making one, but ILM is seriously missing out on him. The Mark Hollis / Talk Talk vibe seems like it was designed to be loved around here.

New album out, if you haven't checked him out please do so. At the very least check Confirmation and Blue Comanche.

confirmation is an excellent song, looking forward to checking out the alb later today

the pop-not-slop posts from Deek every day are always a delight

this Westerman album is dreamy, perfect music for a Sunday morning

boxedjoy, Sunday, 7 June 2020 10:11 (ten months ago) link

yeah it's a consistent vibe, very tasteful. i think the pre-release tracks are still my favorites (blue comanche, the line, confirmation), along with the gorgeous two ending tracks (title track and float over).

love the westerman album, probably deserves its own thread. similar sophisti vibes to last year's nilufer yanya album, just without the distortion

ufo, Friday, 12 June 2020 12:15 (ten months ago) link

Yeah, this is my first Westerman, but it's good! I'm getting more These New Puritans vibes than Hollis/TT. And I can't help but think of Arthur Russell at times, his voice sounds quite like it (like on Blue Comanche). I'm def going to check his previous albums as well.

I'd also recommend the covers albums that DEEK Recordings put out every so often - 4 Down, Covered In Gloria and Extraodinary Renditions

boxedjoy, Friday, 12 June 2020 14:29 (ten months ago) link

The new Westerman LP is a real grower. Definitely getting the Mark Hollis feel but also Arthur Russell in parts and Peter Gabriel. The signed white vinyl copy is sounding nice too.

I'm very proud of my first album, which came out in 1969. But @westermanmusic's first album is much better than my first album! It's one of my favourites at the moment, and of the year so far.

Thank you to Westerman for talking to me on this week's #RocketHour on @applemusic 🚀 pic.twitter.com/vwQGfXMEST

other album that's mb kinda similar 2 bull that i've been enjoying...

'your hero is not dead' by westerman


flopson, Saturday, 22 August 2020 05:39 (seven months ago) link

It's mentioned upthread. It sounds similar because Bullion produces, and I think also co-writes now and then with Westerman.

the westerman album has grown on me so much. i had to get over how similar to arthur russell the use of his voice is in places, but it's definitely its own thing. i agree with the peter gabriel comparison upthread more than the mark hollis comparison, the synths are kept synthetic despite the kind of rarified spiritual tone achieved on 'blue comanche.'
