Update Marco Benevento + Follow

Primary Instrument: Organ, Hammond B3

Marco Benevento is set to release Me Not Me, a new studio album featuring interpretations of songs by artists including My Morning Jacket, Leonard Cohen and Deerhoof. The ten-track collection arrives within a year from release of Benevento's critically acclaimed debut studio effort, Invisible Baby. Like its predecessor, Benevento is joined on the sessions by bassist Reed Mathis and drummers Matt Chamberlain and Andrew Barr. The band recorded at Chroma Sound in Seattle during days off on a West Coast tour earlier this year. Engineer Bryce Goggin (Pavement, Antony & The Johnsons, Phish) mixed the sessions in Brooklyn. Of further note, Benevento takes a giant step into the 21st century with the formation of his own label, The Royal Potato Family (distributed by MRI/Red), for the worldwide release of Me Not Me....

More articles about Marco Benevento
”Benevento swings between rude-synth fun and high-speed piano breaks as if he were both Keith Emerson and McCoy Tyner.” -- Rolling Stone

“Benevento is actually a pop formalist, albeit a sneaky one, and, for all his improvisational chops, a textural minimalist very much in the tradition of Brian Eno or Sigur Ros. Chaos and chance are the calling cards, but his songs are always accessible.” -- Village Voice

“Benevento uses everything from hip takes on '70s pop balladry (particularly the lonesome sound of Jackson Browne's piano playing and the decorative flair of Elton John's) to Radiohead's stretched-to-the-limit sense of time, The Pixies' humor, Air's electronic color palette, and They Might Be Giants' humorist experimentalism to make something uniquely his own in song form where improvisation, rhythm, sound, and space are the new thing.” -- All Music Guide
