As one half of Download (with Skinny Puppy’s Cevin Key) Phillip Western has been crafting Electronic /IDM music for the last two decades. Projects featuring Phil Western include Floatpoint, Off and Gone, Plateau, Download, Frozen Rabbit and Kone.
A prolific music maker, Phil Western has over 40 releases of original music to date. It was his solo work which brought his abilities to light for fans of Download – a complex approach to rhythm and programming, and a sense of melody rooted in psychedelia, drones and space rock.
Rustblade Records is releasing a showcase of some of those projects and releases for a compilation entitled “Laborandum”. Featuring numerous songs from both Western’s solo project as Phil Western. Artwork by Allen Jaeger (Skinny Puppy, Download, House Of Shock)
