Ben Kweller – Sha Sha

21 04 2011

Listened: Monday March 7

I got into Ben Kweller as a result of loving Ben Lee; Kweller was another indie boy around at the same time, so I figured I’d check him out. Some years later Kweller and Lee even formed The Bens with Ben Folds, so apparently I wasn’t too far off base connecting the two.

As much as I love Lee, I think Kweller probably has more popular staying power in the long-term. His songs are a lot more effortless and less self-reflective to me. The upbeat energy and obvious natural musical talent on his songs never fails to make me smile. I need to check out his later albums.
