Benjamin Jones
“Light Up The Room”

Longing for his own youth, ex-Youth Lagoon guitarist Benjamin Jones recently left behind from his adopted city of sunny Los Angeles for the primal Louisiana swamps of his formative years (actually, a Bywater apartment in New Orleans). The songs that resulted from this journey home are a lovely set of nostalgia-filled aches for the past. Simple, no-fuss, beautifully performed & recorded, Ben and friends are premiering their work on a limited 7” coming soon from Plastic Jurassic.

We’re very happy to premiere “Light Up The Room,” one of the songs from that very record. Take a listen, and maybe pick up a copy next month when the Benjamin Jones band hits the road with Generationals (tour dates below).
