Australian-born, New York-based musician David West announces his debut album as Liberation, released on Night School June 10th. A well-travelled veteran of several circuits in his bands Rat Columns, Rank/Xerox and formally Lace Curtain and Total Control, Liberation sees West reach out from the murk into a crystalline world of synthesizers, drum machines and samplers. The results are both familiar and strange: West’s vocal is unmistakable, as is his sharp ear for hooks and incisive turn of phrase.
