Radical Face – Welcome Home, Son

You gotta hate Ben Cooper, not content with creating gentle classics with his main band Electric President he also finds time to record treasures in side projects like Radical Face. Last years’ ‘Ghost’ gets periodic revisits on my laptop, each return journey turns up splinters of newfound joy. Quite how I’d missed ‘Welcome Home, Son’ first time round is beyond me as it is bedecked in such a superior finish. Cascading vocals continually wash over a most acoustic of backdrops in a chorus without words. Elsewhere it’s as if you happened upon a deserted waterfall brimming with nature, untouched by human hands. It will quite literally sweep you off your feet in a whirl of euphoric joy, this Ben Cooper deserves to be adored. KD

    thanks for posting this, never heard of him before and really love it. his work ethic is unbelievable, a snoop around his website is a rather depressing trip, a great photographer and illustrater too. .

    Yeah, he is unbelievable, aside from EP and RF he’s also got that really interesting Mother’s Basement project, not to mention Iron Orchestra….
