by Benjamin Shaw
Tricked by the internet, Benjamin Shaw spent the month of October 2010 writing and recording an album. Here then, is 36 minutes of mumbling, noise, piano and noisey piano. Please enjoy and pass it onto your friends and enemies as you see fit.
It should be noted that this album is a grower. At first listen your girlfriend might say 'What is that noise?'. Well, maybe your girlfriend will never quite get it, but really, maybe she listens to do much Aretha Franklin anyways. But put this album on while you troll about the internet for awhile and it will creep up on you. Kind of like Benjamin Shaw.
The album is available as a 'pay what you like' deal and I think Benjamin Shaw is the kind of guy who, if you met him in real life, you'd probably be willing to buy him a pint. Now is your chance to do that (kind of).
What Others Are Saying:
The Creative Intersection: “Crafted in a self-imposed time limit of one month, the eight tracks here are largely piano based layered with perfectly inserted noise and noise collages, prodding and tinkering to make quite wonderful ambiance that still somehow manage to convey the same scope of emotions that has been displayed in all of Shaw's previous work.”
