Pat Whelan's WELFARE is a sumptuous treat...a hazy sleepy dreampop of the most precise melodies and heartache chamberpop.
Acoustic layers, strings, swirling hammond organ, flutes and reverbed lead guitar lines plucked from the ether....
Easy to see why he's been getting a steady airing on Radio 6 for some time now with interest from major labels in the offing.....and now his debut vinyl release is here on BBR!
Think part Red House Painters 'Songs For A Blue Guitar', Chris Bell's 'I Am The Cosmos' & a hint of Gram Parsons and other dreamy heartbreakers. ..he's going to be massive. Get this now or regret it...
This is a retrospective collection of songs taken from the first four WELFARE EPs (which are available only digitally via Bandcamp at present)
If you loved The Scottish Enlightenment & Jefferson releases on BBR then this is a must have!
