Sitting somewhere between bedroom pop and folky electronica, Big Nothing Glow is taken from Westerman’s new album Your Hero Is Not Dead. It’s a gentle, hauntingly affecting song that calls to mind various other artists with whom I’m more familiar: Autre Ne Veut, Her, Toro Y Moi amongst them. I haven’t properly got stuck into the album yet, but on the basis of this it’s something I’m going to be spending a lot of time with.
Also, remember Just Jack? Westerman looks so much like him I had to check several times that they’re not the same person. So there’s that.
