Album Review: Steve Benjamins - Slightlines (7/10)

EP-Cover-with-textListening to the new song, “We Used To
Live,” by Toronto artist Steve Benjamins, my
 first thought was, “Oh great, another copycat 
popish tune that sounds like just about
 everything else in its genre.” And I nearly
 ditched the idea of listening to the rest of 
Benjamins’ new EP, Sightlines, but I’m glad 
I didn’t. Sure, the music breaks no new ground, but this artist’s voice is intoxicating, and he’s a talented songwriter who has crafted some solid tunes here. “Steamroller,” for example, is a beautiful track. If you like indie music with a luscious pop twist, this EP is worth a listen. – Scott Binder
