Ben Folds, Ben Lee, and Ben Kweller (three of my favorite musicians today) are currently touring Australia together and collaborated on a special EP, with plans to do a full album this summer. I got a copy of the tracks and can’t stop listening to it. It’s just… so…fucking…good.
Usually I’m not much for supergroup collaborations, but it’s a great balance of all three. Some songs are kinda Ben Folds sounding, with lots of piano, some are acoustic and feature Ben Kweller’s sound, with Ben Lee’s sound also infused throughout. It’s even got a 80’s sounding, Gary Newman-esque song.
