Benjamin – Arriving LP – Cherries

CHLP002Chicago-based Cherries Records introduces an LP by Ben Pirani and Ben Carey. Two works on the 8-track album were released earlier this year as a single, though the preceding EP includes an edit of “This Time”.

A modern take on soul and early 80’s pop and funk, Benjamin’s work is perhaps comparable to that of Jamie Lidell. Full of shimmery chords and mid-range textures, the album is relatively downtempo and soft-spoken, but keeps a certain energy throughout. The title track is a restrained jam session and heady in ways. “Hello” and “This Time” should go over well and some songs could arguably work on both speeds.
