Ben Woods Shares New Album 'Dispeller'

Ben Woods Shares New Album 'Dispeller'

Chris Cudby / Friday 15th July, 2022 3:24PM

Today's an exceptional day for local releases, including the avidly awaited new long player Dispeller from Ōtautahi icon Ben Woods. Recorded with co-producer Ben Edwards, the nine track album feels intimate, even rustic as Woods' adventurous sonic palette embraces unpredictable and noisy forms, intertwined with his own inimitable knack for haunting tender balladry. Featuring contributions from Alastair Galbraith, Charlotte Forrester (Womb), Lucy Hunter (Opposite Sex / Wet Specimen) and Marlon Williams, hit play on Woods' ensorcelling new creation and don't miss him touring in September...

“I found my voice in trying to make atonality croon... With Dispeller it was less about harmony — the blend was capturing the songs very honestly in the room, and still making each of them to transport you somewhere different.” — Ben Woods

'Dispeller' is out today via Melted Ice Cream (NZ) / Shrimper (USA) / Meritorio (EU/UK).
