Previous Press:

"It’s a reminder that some of the most powerful emotions can bloom from the simplest of raw moments, and Shaw is an expert at crafting just those instances." - Drowned in Sound

"Brilliantly moving - 9/10." - The 405

"You wouldn't want everyone (or anyone else) to sound to like Benjamin Shaw but I'm delighted someone does." - The Line Of Best Fit

"Benjamin Shaw is an outcast, a loner, a maverick and a freak. All of these are compliments." - CLASH Music

"One of the hidden gems of 2011 - 8/10." - This Is Fake DIY

"One of the better records of the year - 4/5." - Is This Music?

"A truly special album - 4/5" - Music OMH

"An album that is quite unlike anything else, full of blackened charisma and a sonic imagination quite different to most - 8/10." - The Music Fix

"Defiantly ramshackle. The only fear is that Shaw's style may fail to attract the attention it deserves." - The Skinny

"A piece of work that could stand the test of time...The solitude is palpable." - Gold Flake Paint


released March 24, 2014

Features Trumpet & Piano by Lieven Scheerlinck (A Singer of Songs) -

Track Name: Goodbye, Kagoul World
“I haven't the minutes and I haven't the hours
and I haven't the pollen to say it with flowers.

I haven't the cards to make better words
and I haven't the seed to feed all the birds

I haven't the lungs and you haven't the nose
and I haven't the skill to put into prose

But I'm not the problem, frankly I'm tired
No, I'm not the problem, I'm perfectly fine.”
