Featured Stream: Ben Kweller

Posted by - 11:16 AM on 02/08/12
Ben Kweller has just released his fifth studio album, Go Fly a Kite, on his very own label, The Noise Company. If you're a longtime fan, you're going to love hearing all of Kweller's influences meshed into his own unique sound. And if you're new to his music, then this album is a great place to start; it's a catchy and infectious, yet profound, record that does not rely on cheesy lyrics. So head over to his AP.net profile to stream the album in its entirety and let us know what you think. Enjoy.

YESSSSS! Ben Kweller is the man. I love that his new stuff really sounds like a mix of a lot of his old stuff, but still feels fresh. A year or two ago my girlfriend and I were broke and saw him do a free acoustic show at the Queen Anne Silver Platters (Seattle) and he called up his tour manager and got put us on his guest list for his "real" show that night.

Best day o' my life! His show was absolute awesome, too. It was right after Changing Horses came out and they played those songs soooo well.

the fourth song is mislabeled "mean to me". it's actually "gossip" and coincidentally one of the best songs on the release. Just wanted to give a heads up

I bought this Tuesday and haven't had a chance to listen to it yet. I'm glad to hear it wasn't a let down.
