[streaming] Benedict Benjamin – Thin Skin

Benedict Benjamin is Ben Rubinstein, formerly of The Mariner’s Children and Peggy Sue. His debut album “Night Songs” is a collection of timeless compositions recorded in a series of churches, bedrooms and kitchens across London and Kent with producer Dan Blackett (Landshapes, Bella Union).

Ben is first and foremost a songwriter versed in the classical traditions of the form, capable of crafting both operatic crescendo and lullabylike stillness shot through with the heartbreaking swoon of Roy Orbison, the soothing harmonies of the Everly Brothers and the honesty of Jeff Tweedy. His songs undercut the dreamlike beauty of early 60s pop music with lyrics both frank and poetic, creating a powerful Lynchian duality that makes the heart swell and the head spin.

“Night Songs” is released March 25th, 2016.
