Rustin Man (a.k.a. Paul Webb), formerly the bass player in Talk Talk, releases his new album Drift Code via Domino. Available here on 180-gram vinyl with 4-page booklet and download card, and standard CD.
Recorded at his Essex home, a converted barn three miles from the nearest village, the record has a warm, wise kind of euphoria to it, coupled with an acute sense of storytelling and surreality. Webb has released one record under the moniker Rustin Man so far - the superb Out Of Season in 2002, a collaboration with Beth Gibbons of Portishead. As you might expect from someone of Webb’s pedigree, Drift Code is a deep, detailed work. The passage of time, the living space full of art, treasured objects and junk, the years spent listening to film music and ‘40s standards are all audible. But there’s a surprising spontaneity to it too. Drums were played by Webb’s former Talk Talk and O'Rang colleague Lee Harris.
