Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

BENJI HUGHES

A Love Extreme

2008-08-11

This is the debut album from Charlotte, NC native, Benji Hughes. It's loaded with songs that are sometimes funny, sometimes poignant, and most always interesting. While Benji had help from studio musicians here and there, he performed most of it himself, with the help of producer and co-writer Keefus Ciancia. This is electronic rock that at times reminds me of Beck. Benji writes about everyday things and his sense of humor really shines on such tracks as "Tight Tee Shirt", "You Stood Me Up", and "The Mummy". Reviewed by Rebecca Ruth.
