FINAL WAR OF THE INEVITABLE BARBIE BY BENJAMIN MASON

It’s rare to come across an album of such eclecticism as that of the new one by Benjamin Mason, Pembrokeshire singer and songwriter.

The new one is titled Oi! Rapscallion – rapscallion being both a tremendous and tremendously underused word – and involves neo-punk-folk, instrumentals and found sounds in it’s construction. We feature the lead track, a Mogwai-esque instrumental in the sort of post-rock vein. It’s all terribly exciting, like getting a box of chocolates without the guide as to what’s what. It’s all so tempting and all very different.

Oi! Rapscallion is out on the 25th. Check Mason’s bandcamp then for details. Follow @benmason_music
