Relatives Music Soundcloud, HERE.

The Westerlies are a New York based brass quartet comprised of four friends from Seattle, Washington. Avid explorers of cross-genre territory, The Westerlies are a collectively run ensemble dedicated to the cultivation of a new brass quartet repertoire that exists in the ever-narrowing gap between American folk music, jazz, classical, and indie rock. The Westerlies have also collaborated with Wayne Horvitz, Dave Douglas, Bill Frisell, and Juilliard Dance. Members of the Westerlies currently study at The Juilliard School and Manhattan School of Music.

Their debut album “Wish The Children Would Come on Home: The Music of Wayne Horvitz,” will be released in March 2014 on Vancouver, BC label Songlines Records.

“On April 29, William Tyler, a Nashville guitarist (Lambchop, Silver Jews) and composer, will release Lost Colony, the follow-up EP to his critically acclaimed 2013 release Impossible Truth. The limited-edition 12-inch features the new song “Whole New Dude,” a full-band reworking of “We Can’t Go Home Again” from Impossible Truth, and “Karussell,” a cover of a Michael Rother (Neu!) song.”

“The 12-inch was recorded and mixed by Joe Pisapia at Middletree Studios in Nashville in late 2013. The full band for this recording is William Tyler on guitar and keyboard; Reece Lazarus (bass guitar); Jamin Orrall (drums, percussion); and Luke Schneider (pedal steel guitar). In addition, the album’s front and back cover photography is the work of Tyler’s younger sister Elise.” –MERGE


「Whole New Dude」というタイトルは、ツアー中にM. C. テイラー(Hiss Golden Messenger)とジュリアン・ジェインズの『The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind:神々の沈黙-意識の誕生と文明の興亡』(1976著作、デヴィッド・ボウイが挙げるお気に入り100册のブックリストにも…)について話していた時に、ふと口をついて出てきたのだとか …。
