Although William does most of his work for major recording stars like Madonna, Pink, Oasis and U2, he has managed to release a few (too few!) entirely original works, most notably the Strange Cargo series. The last of the four was Strange Cargo Hinterland: it was released in 1995! So Hello Waveforms has to satisfy some major expectations. Is it any good? I haven't heard it yet, but it is getting some airplay on KCRW, where it is one of the most requested albums, which bodes well.
