Benjamin Booker
Witness

Benjamin Booker’s new record is partly the result of a trip he took to Mexico City, which gave him a broader perspective on his own world. Booker has an excellent sound that mixes all the best hallmarks of classic soul and R&B with an edgy garage blues touch. Witness, which features a guest vocal from Mavis Staples(!) is released by Rough Trade.

Guitarist and songwriter Benjamin Booker makes stripped down garage rock that goes back to the most basic elements; he's backed up only with drums from Max Norton, and makes rapid, blink-and-you'll-miss-them rock songs that feel like they last as long as Robert Pollard makes them. Booker claims to be influenced by old school punk bands like Gun Club and T. Rex, although when he throws in a solo, his sound is also reflective of Rough Trade alumni the Strokes and newer garage professors like Ty Seagall. His self-titled debut is well-produced raucousness.  Tracks: Violent Shiver Always Waiting Chippewa Slow Coming Wicked Waters Have You Seen My Son? Spoon Out My Eyeballs Happy Homes I Thought I Heard You Scream Old Hearts Kids Never Growing Older By The Evening
