Under his pseudonym Rustin Man, Paul Webb dazzled his audience in a duo with Beth Gibbons (the voice behind Portishead) on the album Out of Season (2002). Before that, the British artist had played bass guitar in Mark Hollis' cult group Talk Talk between 1981 and 1988. He later produced a few albums (The Year of the Leopard by James Yorkston in 2006 and Hilfe Kommt by Dez Mona in 2009) but nevertheless remained rather discreet... At 57, Webb has finally decided to release his first real solo album. The record is well-matured and truly personal. It was recorded at his home where he lives with his wife and children - a converted barn in the middle of a field in Essex, 3 miles from the nearest village. The building has the feel of an old curiosity shop that has been transformed into a modern living space. The attic seems like it has escaped right out of Alice in Wonderland and it is there that Rustin Man recorded his delicate voice, one that’s reminiscent of Robert Wyatt. In fact, the former leader of Soft Machine often comes to mind on Drift Code, as the album mixes chamber pop, baroque folk, fairground blues and fake jazz. There’s also a touch of Bowie in his tracks, which are carried by a cabaret piano, a psychedelic guitar, a funeral organ or an eerie euphonium... It’s an intriguing and magnificent record that feels like a strange dream, full of twists and turns. A dream that we return to again and again, just to enjoy its timeless richness. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Label

Domino Recording Co

In 1997 Domino released Pavement's landmark commercial breakthrough Brighten The Corners which was followed a year later by Elliot Smith's Either/Or  and in 1999 the debut album by Will Oldham as Bonnie 'Prince' Billy - I See Darkness: a series of albums that confirmed the label's reputation as the preeminent European home of American music. Bell's desire to work with British bands as innovative and singular as his American artists reached fruition in the late nineties with the signings of Four Tet, Clinic, James Yorkston and The Kills.    All were acts with a distinct identity that established Domino as a label interested in creativity rather than in any particular ...
