jeffreyjeff If you are a folk fan, or like any "roots" music-- particularly classic stuff like Stan Rogers-- you will LOVE this album.

Nader Eid Been smashing the repeat button on this album ever since I bought it. Brilliantly composed and those lyrics! Holy hell they're awesome! Favorite track: Birds With Broken Wings.

October Country This album is like listening to the soundtrack of a fantastic, dark burlesque off-Broadway show you'll never get out of your head. I struggle for appropriate metaphors. If Joe Cocker, Tom Waits and Tom Jones conceived a dark love child on the set of Jesus Christ Superstar, it would come out Ben Caplan. This record is amazing. Just listen to a few tracks. You will either love it and have to own it (I did), or hate it and wind up smashing your phone to get away from it... It really is that great! Favorite track: Belly of the Worm.

Hux The title track is perfect. Not very constructive praise, I know, but there it is. Just... wow! Also, who doesn't love a good Caspar Friedrich homage? Favorite track: Birds With Broken Wings.

about

Ben Caplan & The Casual Smokers Halifax, Nova Scotia

A charismatic charmer and a smasher of pianos. A madman and an earnest poet. A strummer of delicate chords and a lover of bent and broken melodies. His rough and textured tones cut through crowded halls; an enormous voice, roaring louder than raucous crowds. once he has your attention, Caplan can croon smoother than a glass of single malt whisky, pouring beauty into a harsh world. ... more
