White Williams – Route To Palm

Who is White Williams and why isn’t he playing trumpet in a freeform jazz project where the average member is well into his seventies? That is exactly what went through my mind as I pressed play on this gorgeously manicured little number. Could be an ode to masturbation but I haven’t read the lyrics so I may be way off the mark? White is in fact Joseph, a precocious youngster with a decade in the music business already under his belt. His debut album came out late last year in the States (just now in Europe, hardly makes sense though in today’s world does it?) and was a DIY effort mostly dreamed up on a portable computer and recorded in a variety of rented locations. Technology is definitely Williams’s friend and the union has afforded him the opportunity join up with Domino Records as well as Vampire Weekend who he is currently touring with. He will be playing Vicar Street on the 14th June with true Emerald Isle hugger Dan Deacon in what promises to be the ultimate battle of the laptops (as part of the Foggy Notions Future Days Festival).
