Currently Listening To: Steve Benjamins

I’m putting together the pieces for our upcoming “Best New Artists Of 2013” post, compiling everything from my wonderful contributors.  I took a break to check the inbox, as I’m still getting press releases and e-mails about (and from) new artists, making me wonder, “When do we take a break for the holidays?”.  I’m guessing not yet, as I’m still finding gems.  Case in point, Toronto bedroom artist Steve Benjamins, who sent me a note today.

He tipped me to “Violence Came For Us” from his latest EP Disorientation Man, but I jumped to the last track, as I was partial to “Strangeness” (because of the epic ending).

Check it out.
