Playing with an invention and a youthfulness that sets them apart from the scene, Special Benny are special in that they appear to be putting the fun factor into post-rock. Their first track alone crosses a Kraftwerk-esque melody with two more guitar tunes that seem to go off on completely different tangents yet somehow fit together perfectly into a delightful instrumental jigsaw. Meanwhile, 'Drums And Phase' allies crisp percussion with a delightful twinkling melody and the title track sees the sextet nail a vocal track with a dolefully sad yet thoroughly likeable tune. Finally, the two-parter 'Sine And Step' conforms to the usual post-rock ideals by building up slowly then piling on the aggression towards the big finale; making it a slight disappointment after the freshness of the first three tracks. All in all, Special Benny are a refreshing new name in a scene that has shown a lack of invention in recent times.
