Album Review

Benjy Ferree – In The Countryside

At long last the music world receives what it has been waiting for, a worthy successor to Belle and Sebastian. This Washington DC-based singer-songwriter is signed to the same record label as the Arctic Monkeys and, while he may not receive the same level of success as the Sheffield band, his rare brand of music certainly looks set to generate a loyal, if small, fan base. The general jauntiness of new single In The Countryside, coupled with the unrivalled enthusiasm of Ferree’s vocals, may well herald a promising musical career for a man who has more in common with Eels frontman E than mere looks.
As I look out of my window at the overcast Cardiff skyline, it is great that the music of Benjy Ferree provides a ray of light.
