Mr Ben & The Bens - The Happy Shopper EP

Following the amazing success of the Bingo Records Split EP, Lancaster polymath Ben Hall, AKA Mr Ben & the Bens is back with four new songs and another UK tour to boot! Since the release of 'The Bluest Blues' and 'My Museum' on the split record, Mr Ben has toured the UK with DIY legends The Lovely Eggs, played in session for Marc Riley on BBC Radio 6 Music, watered his houseplants, bought a new hat, eaten at least 17 pieces of toast and had a bath. After all that, it was time to record some new stuff. Here's The Happy Shopper EP, out on Bingo Records.

The record, due in summer this year, sees Ben continuing to write songs that reflect his own ability to see the noteworthy in the everyday. His ear for a melody shines through the song writing, and the ethos behind the album is firmly rooted in the growing co-operative DIY scene fast becoming synonymous with his home town of Lancaster. Ben said: "The Happy Shopper EP is a set of four songs I wrote over the Christmas period of 2017. I recorded it over 4 days at Church Road studio in Brighton with producer Theo Verney and drummer Nicholas Klar. The studio is packed with analogue gear so it was a full on assault to use as much of the stuff I don't have at home as I could. "I went in wanting to use as little post-production as possible to try and get a soul-esque sound to the record, where the instrumentation creates the dynamic rather than the software.
