Arriving hot on the heels of last year’s magnificent Drift Code, Clockdust makes for a generous second serving of atmospheric wonder from Paul Webb’s long-running solo project Rustin Man. Would you expect any less from a man who cut his teeth as Talk Talk’s bassist?

From the wonderfully pensive Jackie’s Room, via the scuzzy blues of Love Turns Her On to the dub-soaked glory of Night In The Evening, Webb effortlessly weaves an intricate tapestry from an eclectic array of disparate musical elements, making for the kind of gloriously multi-layered record that just demands to be listened to on repeat; as much a portal into another world as it is a collection of immaculately crafted songs. Divine stuff.
