Benge - Meme Tunes
The record store shelves may be heaving with digital debris, but electro-veteran Benge has been at it since the mid-'90s, taking every opportunity to refine his twitchy noodlings and invest them with a distinctive melancholy warmth. These 11 tracks take the 'discreet music' of '70s Eno and filter it through a thoroughly modernist and meticulous electronic aesthetic.
With atmospheric tracks like "Pica Unit" and "Urban", Benge exhibits a keen sense of melody that elevates him above the competition.
