With a spare, understated sound that is both poppy, soulful and modern, UK singer-songwriter Westerman has drawn comparisons to everyone from Nick Drake, Arthur Russell, and Talking Heads. (Comparisons to Jose Gonzalez and Hot Chip would not be off base either.) Westerman has yet to release an album but has dropped a steady stream of singles and EPs over the last couple years, including last year's lovely "Confirmation" and the recent "Edison"/"Easy Money." Check out a few tracks below.

Westerman will be heading across the Atlantic in November for shows in Brooklyn (Elsewhere Zone One on 11/27) and Los Angeles (Moroccan Lounge on 11/29). Tickets for both shows are on sale. He's got UK and EU dates leading up to his stateside visit -- all are listed below.
