Lil Ben - Well Anyway

Image of Lil Ben - Well Anyway


Benito Sinclair took four particularly pretty tracks from his album NOW EVERYBODY and digitally re-processed them, with the idea in mind that they'd sound more like "noise pop" than the actual lineup at San Francisco's Noise Pop festival. He handed the tracks to Manzanita Tapes' Dylan Chapple for mastering, so Dylan blew the stereo channels out even more and recorded side A backwards onto side B of the master cassette. Ben wrote a story for the liners, Jon Hrabko sprayed some paint on them, and voila: handmade packaging for the sound of the stock market crashing, like a plane into a tower--leaving only a single white feather to drift in the dust-thickened air.
