It’s time to grow up and put away childish things. It’s time to put on Fever Dream by Ben Watt an album of laid back singer songwriter charm that is probably a little too low key to ever be truly popular.
For anyone who doesn’t know Ben Watt was the songwriter and musician with the group ‘Everything but the Girl.’
He had a period running a label called ‘Buzzin fly’ which dealt mainly in house music but now in the last two solo albums he has released he has returned to his roots so to speak. This is the kind of music you can play on a lazy Sunday afternoon.
It’s themes of friendship; reminiscence and self-acceptance offer an antidote to the world of social media churn and burn.
