Title - 'Modern Man' [EP]
Artist - Ben Lang

For those not in the know, Ben Lang is a singer-songwriter from San Rafael, CA.

His debut solo release, Modern Man EP (releasing November 27th, 2020 via Moo Moo Records) offers six finely-crafted alternative-acoustic tracks written and performed entirely by Lang himself, with expressive lyrics and a slight country feel akin to artists as varied as Violent Femmes, Paul Simon, or Willie Nelson.

Together with Paggi (aka Dan Paggi), also a notable Pacific Northwest artist, Lang was a founding member of the San Francisco cult classic band Biv and the Mnemonics (aka Roy G Biv & The Mnemonic Devices), whose albums The Blue Orange (2009) and The Pace (2013) were released to critical acclaim and still resonate today.

1. 'Houston-New Orleans'
2. 'Modern Man'
3. 'Nailin' It'
4. 'Hollow Spaces'
5. 'Tee Off With Your Head'
6. 'Mr. Moon'

Opening on the vibrant, free-flowing across the plains, gentle bounce of 'Houston-New Orleans,' next up is the foot-tappin' vibe of the Americana-imbued 'Modern Man.'

A track that works its way into being, you can hear all Lang's influences coming together as one and that's followed by the lo-fi, organic acoustic guitar ballad 'Nailin' It.'

Up next is the beautiful, mid-tempo ballad 'Hollow Spaces,' which is itself backed by the smoothly fervent, Hee-Haw imbibed 'Tee Off With Your Head,' with this delightful new EP coming to a close on the lonesome vocal outreach to above on 'Mr. Moon.'

Ben Lang's Modern Man EP is available online everywhere music is streamed and sold November 27th, 2020 [Black Friday].
