We've Seen The Sunrise With New Eyes. We've Seen The Damage Of Gossip And True Lies.
I like Ben Kweller. He's like the little brother you ignore, until the day you discover he's raided your record collection and is now writing pretty fucking amazing pop songs. Bastard. On his new self titled release, Kweller once again puts together a nifty package of quirky love songs and contemplative ballads. Opting to play all the instruments himself, BK successfully pulls off a solo album that comes across sounding like a full band. Not insular in the least and 100% more mature than his previous efforts, BK is full of life, love, and raucousness. For your listening (dis)pleasure:
Ben Kweller: Thirteen
Ben Kweller: Penny On The Train Track
Ben Kweller: Magic
Ben Kweller: Nothing Happening
