HWY-023: The Conformist by Doveman



Doveman is Thomas Bartlett and his select group of collaborators. On his latest album, The Conformist, those players include Sam Amidon, Nico Muhly, Glen Hansard (Swell Season, The Frames, Once), Norah Jones, Dawn Landes, Beth Orton, Martha Wainwright and The National members Matt Berninger, Aaron Dessner, Bryce Dessner, and Bryan Devendorf.

Of Doveman’s new record, Hansard says, “The Conformist is just fucking beautiful. Thomas brings so much light to other people’s music, it’s great to see him stop long enough to apply that light to his profound sense of song. He’s not afraid to go in, in where the good stuff is, in where you might get lost without a compass, in and deeper in.”
