Goodbye, Cagoule Worldis the latest album from singer/songwriter Benjamin Shaw and has been release on the excellent Audio Antihero. Shaw now resides in London after being born in Canada and raised in Blackpool, an interesting combination to say the least.
This melancholic album comes together superbly as a single piece of music coming in at just under thirty minutes as well as the named seven individual tracks. Shaw really does stretch his talents to convey a plethora of emotions and this added to the understated fuzziness of the album really does make for superb listening. It would be unfair of me to pick out stand out tracks on this sublime album full of intriguing soundscapes as the whole thing is an absolute joy to hear and needs to be appreciated as a whole. After the listener on a mesmeric journey Shaw brings everything to a conclusion with the title track that simply leaves
you yearning for more.
