Ben Benjamin is a new solo endeavor brought to life by Ghostly veteran Ben Mullins, founding member of Midwest Product and Postprior.

His first album, The Many Moods of Ben Benjamin Vol. 1, takes a few cues from the previous Postprior release, integrating two contrasting techniques into a single vibrant palette: one being the ability to harvest from a precision-based world of masterful production, and the other, drawing upon the rich characteristics of real-life instrumentation and the nuance of a flowing, melodic narrative.

The result is a surefire blend of personal, non-genrefied songwriting and an overall soundtrack feel, with stunning timbrel shifts, heartfelt lines and a tight-knit balance of repetitive elaboration.
