Immediate download of 6-track album in the high-quality format of your choice (MP3, FLAC, and more), plus unlimited mobile access using the free Bandcamp listening app.
Fancy CD with full lyrics and handmade artwork. This EP isn't complete until you hold it in your disgusting hands! Not a CDR, which is important to me and no one else.
Though, it does also includes immediate download of 6-track album in your choice of 320k mp3, FLAC, or just about any other format you could possibly desire.
Combining abstract storytelling with fiery musical cluster bombs, Benjamin Shaw has given us a beautifully bitter debut that boasts both fragile innocence and homicidal fantasy - an unforgettable and purifying experience. Get the Pox: Six and a half songs of nausea, noise and hilarious anecdote.
"Quite beautiful." - Subba Cultcha
"Fastidiously DIY in sound...A ‘name’ for 2010." - God is in The TV
"Underground notoriety beckons - 8/10." - Rock Pulse
Up there with the best of this year...on the 'to watch' list for 2010 - 8/10." - The Music Fix
"An alterative idol in waiting..." - Fractions Of One
"Defiantly ramshackle. The only fear is that Shaw's style may fail to attract the attention it deserves." -
"A 'singer-songwriter' who obviously isn't happy with the connotations that tag would bestow upon him. He's fighting to find his own voice in a sea of tepid waters soiled by the likes of Jame's Morrison and Blunt." - Tasty Fanzine
“Benjamin Shaw had a few more surprises tucked away than I first thought. I would definitely love to hear more. CD of the week.” – Nic Dalton, The Lemonheads
"Pools of buzzing synths, effects and distorted cries. Like a nightmare Mark Linkous may even have rejected from ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ for being a little too ‘ominous’." - Americana UK
"His lyrics are delivered flat so they stick in your soul like a stake...dangerous but completely seductive. Benjamin Shaw is a one-man wall in a dark alleyway of sound, and I’ll be looking out for him. 9/10." - Music Emissions
"Benjamin vocal's are very distinct and a whole host of adjectives can be used to try and describe them but it's almost impossible to do so - 4/5." - Tracks Monkey
"Defiantly lo-fi values cloak soul baring singer-songwriterliness as if essayed at the end of a very long and uncomfortably active night, throwing everything off course with electronic layers, noises and the inscrutability of his lyrical worldview." - Sweeping The Nation
