Album Notes
It’s no exaggeration for Rolling Stone to call The New Benjamin Britton “a band from Brooklyn.” The New York Times even goes so far as to say “music.” But while such lofty praise is flattering, the band prefers to focus on the cold, hard facts: they are, empirically speaking, making the best music in the history of Western civilization. Let’s explore why.

Britton Matthews, a classically trained NYC-based percussionist mans the marimba, vibraphone, and many other things you can hit with a stick or your hands. Ben Cockerham, a former professional Lindy Hopper, handles bass and guitar simultaneously with an 8 string superaxe, and sings like a banshee. The live show includes jungles of hand percussion, mystery instruments, and the occasional appearance of the band’s dog and mascot - a boxador named Abbey. Their blend of marimba-guitar indie-pop tastes pretty good. Not too bad at all.

"Raise A Glass Broken Land" is the group's debut album, released July 2013. MidTN music calls the album "one of the coolest to come across this desk in a while" and says "This is everything you love about singer/songwriter duos only fresher…and quite refreshing."
