Brendan Benson

Brendan Benson, Dapper Man

Brendan Benson's been releasing music for almost 10 years, but he's only been able to put out 3 cds. His debut "One Mississippi" was partly co-written with Jason Falkner (of Jellyfish and the Grays) and he ran into label troubles before and after the record was released. He released his sophomore debut "Lapalco" 8 years later in 1992. His newest record "The Alternative To Love" came out in March of this year. There are some outstanding tracks on the new record. He's definitely got the power pop thing down pat. He reminds me a bit of Sondre Lerche in his poppier songs and Elliot Smith in his more thoughtful tracks. Go to his official website to listen to some tracks. Buy "One Mississippi", "Lapalco" or "The Alternative To Love".
