“Superlative solo album from The Goners’ Daniel Westerlund covers a lot of space over the course of a record—from astrally inclined folk, ambient to raga expeditions. It holds together quite beautifully too. It definitely has a bite of Scandinavian chill about it, but the overall feeling is the same warm wooziness of OS favourite Papa M’s ‘Live From a Shark’s Cave.’ There is no higher compliment! All housed in the usual high standard SOB packaging. Great to see them coming out of the gate with a strong set of releases. Essential!”

“What Westerlund has given us is an immensely satisfying LP that wears it’s influences and musical loves proudly on it’s sleeve. It is ambitious and grand whilst avoiding sounding pretentious and over-reaching.”

“It would be downright insidious if it didn’t sound so cool.”

“… on first listen I was fairly baffled by what seems to be a confoundingly diverse set of 9 songs. But after the second listen I was intrigued, and a few more listens later I’ve decided that Westerlund has created something quite different.”

The goneph

“Now the E GONE symbol is become a supra-alphabetical character, the goneph.

One aspect of the goneph may be observed in the Blind Tribe video exercise. Each time the goneph appears, all meaning is ‘drawn away and inward toward the other,’ and access to the visual image is denied. Thus the title, Blind Tribe.

The goneph is a gesture that opens all the way and closes all the way. It is a valve.”

- D.G.

“…a treasure trove of diamonds and pearls”

“Being both a first-rate singer songwriter and a highly travelled music explorer he brings new life and vitality into both the world of folk and post rock. Assembling a discography to improve anyone’s music collection, whether he goes by The Goner or E-Gone, Daniel Westerlund builds worlds, inhabits them and then allows you to holiday there. The intrepid are urged to pack their bags and set sale…”
