Today marks the release of David West’s fourth eponymous record, Jolly In the Bush. By this point you’ll know David as the underground pop musician from Perth, Western Australia who has been in numerous interesting and more-or-less obscure acts over the decades – some include Rat Columns, Rank/Xerox, Total Control, Lace Curtain, Liberation, Burning Sensation and Scythe.

His solo works allow him free reign to follow various classic and sideways pop rainbows to their illogical conclusions, something he does on Jolly in the Bush more than ever before.  In fact, Jolly In The Bush should be seen as a homage to shaggy indie dorks, sub-tropical singer-songwriters, robotic melancholia and the pre-Cold War ‘grown and sexy’ aisle at the Marina Safeway.

As David himself implores, please, join us and become Jolly In The Bush!

Jolly in the Bush is pressed on both black and green vinyl, each limited to 250 copies. Watch the video for opening track, ‘Poet of My Dreams’ and ‘You Must Be My Friend’ below. And of course, today is Bandcamp Friday, the timing couldn’t be much better.
