About three weeks ago I emailed Wonderful Noise to see if I could get my hands on a copy of the new Benny Tones album “Chrysalis” which recently released on Evert Waking Hour. For those that never heard of Benny, he’s a Wellington-based producer/DJ/audio engineer and the official sound tech for Electric Wire Hustle. So I decided to hit up RBMA participant Manzana and he patched me through to Benny. Have to say I really love the whole vibe of the album and the Kiwi’s managed to surprise me once more, coming out of nowhere with a stunning release. Can’t go wrong with artists like Mara TK and Joe Dukie (Fat Freddy’s Drop) on your album of course.
Available on iTunes and CD (via Amplifier), but with a hefty price attached to it. Might want to wait a bit for world wide distribution so I can pick it up at Rush Hour. Thanks to Benny for sharing “Nevermind” with us and making it available for FREE download!
