Benjamin Shaw #4 - OOPS, Your Face Upon the Windscreen

Here's part four (or the ending of a quadrilogy, if you believe sci-fi liars) of the Benjamin Shaw epic. Yes sir, a week of free songs!

Today's Benjamin Shaw song is "OOPS, Your Face Upon the Windscreen" which you can download from Benjamin's site - HERE.

Written in Melbourne and recorded in Tottenham in 2006 (go figure), this is a charmingly rough and raw recording, "OOPS" has a glorious groove and a stumbling swagger that's hard to dislike (not that we've tried). Certainly the song boasts a bit of a 'singer songwriter' style, a tag Benjamin worked hard to purge himself of on his "I Got the Pox, the Pox is what I Got" EP - but good songs are good songs, and this is a great look at where his sound evolved from.

A personal favourite for sure.

Over the next three days we're going to have some rarer and arguably even cooler stuff, so keep an eye on the site and the blog.

Thank you.
