We're all quite taken with this Benjamin Wetherill CD on Ba Da Bing. He's based around these parts IE west Yorkshire, but he sounds like he's from another galaxy, a galaxy where folk musicians use their prowess to seduce the ladies with their silver tongue or in Benjamin's case use their guitar as a form of heartbreak therapy. He's a melancholy chap but his music is very sweet & rather touching taking in strong elements of Nick Drake with a touch of Banhart's waver (without the punchable histrionics) This lovely CD takes a team effort. Coming up the left side, dribbling like a goon is Phil who offers up "Big Eyes-esque, very pan-European" Brett passes across "English whimsy" in his deepest foreboding Yorkshire grunt whilst Phil sprints to slam "pastoral" into the metaphorical goal. Phew! This is smashing stuff, very classic sounding old skool folk with lavish yet simple embellishment. What a talent this fella is turning out to be! 'Laura' is CD only
