I never knew Ben Benjamin could be so... moody, but THE MANY MOODS OF BEN BENJAMIN, VOL. 1 gladly proves me wrong. Merging the electronic and indie rock has never been easy, but he shifts tones quickly, from the plinking and New Order-like stylings on "Selective Periphera" to the guitar-and-electro combination of "Sassy Blanche." He can even shift within tracks, the way the jittery electronics of "Hypertexan" give way to acoustic guitar. There are plenty of short, pop ditties, (like the banjo-driven "VIP LCD"), though he can get more contemplative too: "Butane Wayne" goes off in a minor key, and "Chamber," with its piano chords and lingering tones, is like a sprint through a cathedral. The tempo slows down for "Sideways Cerebus," as well, which gives that track a more considered feel, even as it explodes halfway through. "Chixen," too, has a lulling quality to it, but "Fishin' for Coldy Winds," takes the the album on a funky note. Plenty of moods to go around!
