Ben and Bruno Download mp3 | Stream mp3
Peter J. Brant, Joe LaGrand, and Matt Jensen, of Ypsilanti Records, New Blood, and Bunkbed Nights fame, phone it in from Grand Rapids, MI. Centered by Peter's warm and understated vocals, Ben and Bruno weave a story-web around a character named Ben and his dog Bruno, in a continuous strain of non-congruent narrative. It may sound gimmicky, but it's anything but. Ben and Bruno are about as unpretentious as it gets, gently drawing you in with songs that are subtly catchy and utterly compelling.

To catch you up, this is the mythology:

"After losing his mother at a very young age, Ben is abducted by a religious fanatic who has been living in the apartment above the family. Ben, during his trip while fleeing from the police, falls in love with the woman who has abducted him. The story continues after the capture of his new love and he grows older, marrying, having two daughters, divorcing his wife."
