Raconteur (and Raconteur) Brendan Benson has a new album, My Old, Familiar Friend, out on Aug. 18. But if you're like most people, the album is neither old nor familiar to you. So, the good people at NPR are streaming the whole damn thing for your listening pleasure. Says Robin Hilton:
Benson is a meticulous songwriter -- and, as with his three previous solo releases, My Old, Familiar Friend is a work of carefully orchestrated precision. The songs are tightly wound, with ridiculously catchy hooks, perfectly placed handclaps and harmonies and sweet, buoyant melodies.
And there you have it. Listen to the whole thing here. You can also download "Feel Like Taking You Home" over at MBV.
