Ever feel like ice cream has way too many flavors nowadays? Â I want to set fire to all the Ben n Jerry’s ‘chocolate-smothered jalapeĂ±o with strawberry-kiwi flakes and coconut swirl’ and reach for some old-fashioned mexican vanilla.
Benjamin Booker backs up that sentiment with some straight-forward ‘chicken n noodles’ riffy rock n roll. Â He’s coming out with an album this coming fall, but in the meantime, enjoy this super cheap 7” teaser of what’s to come.
If you’re across the pond, you can buy this on Rough Trade HERE.

ATO is excited to announce the signing of Benjamin Booker, a young New Orleans based singer-songwriter. Described as â€śa well-mixed musical cocktail of punk, folk, and New Orleans bluesâ€ť, Booker cites his influences as The Gun Club, Blind Willie Johnson, and T. Rex. Benjaminâ€™s self-titled debut album, produced by Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes, Hurray For The Riff Raff) will be released Fall 2014 on ATO (USA) / Rough Trade (Europe)
An esteemed colleague had this to say about Benjaminâ€™s music:
"Itâ€™s exciting, raw, soulful, and has a brilliant relentless beat, that only those who love rock and roll truly understand.â€ť
