AHE-10 MAN BENU - The Kindling - LP: $13
Man Benu is a three-piece band based out of Brooklyn and the greater New York area. Led by the guitar wizardry and songwriting talent of Bentley Anderson, Man Benu is an evolving sound of harmony and dissonance centered interwoven guitar lines, lyrical song structures, and drone heavy tonality. Backed by drummer Taylor Davis and guitarist/lap steel player Brady Sansone, Man Benu began writing and performing their sprawling pastoral rock songs in late 2008. Referencing the epic sweep of guitar bands such as Come and Sonic Youth, and the pastoral folk arrangements of Fairport Convention, Man Benu’s debut album The Kindling explores a world of grey dawns and heavy sunsets.
