Moonlight Benjamin | ‘Siltane’
The priest of voodoo rock’n’roll Moonlight Benjamin pulls no punches with a straight-for-the-jugular, guitar licked homage to Haiti evoking an Afro-energised Black Keys.
The new album Siltane is a bountiful display of energy in an oft-growling record which plays host to flashes of light and shrouds of darkness, defying notions of musical purity. With a rudimentary line up of guitar, bass, keyboard and drums, the 10 track proceedings are rendered next level with an intensity and urgency thanks to the entrancing, voodoo inspired voice and Creole poetry of Moonlight and a fearless blues-rock entourage.
The new album is out today via Ma Case Records.
