Recorded in 2014, the album Dogs N Yaa by Benjamin Mason has just been re-released by the reliable Recordiau Prin label, for the first time with a physical format available.
The title is an anagram of ‘a song a day’, the original concept behind the record – a collection of songs written in a productive spell in 2013. That process, forcing oneself to get a track done in a day, almost forces Mason into some very honest works and leaves no time to over-produce. As such, it’s quite stripped back, but still manages to paint an intriguing sonic landscape.
