Our favorite hippie, Marco Benevento, released a new single this week, "At the Show", off his upcoming album, Swift, out September 16 on Royal Potato Family. Swift marks the first time in which Benevento's vocals are featured and the man sounds just as gregarious singing along as his playing has always conveyed. Check out the song and Marco's pipes, available for purchase at iTunes and Amazon and give it some play after the jump.
Enjoy some TigerFace after your turkey day (if you're American, or before your second matzah night if you're Jewish, I would imagine, not to pare down a holy day to its attachment to an unleavened bread that tastes quite good in soup). Here's video of Marco Benevento's full performance in Baltimore's 8x10 back on November 9th. It was a very full two hour set with a very well placed camera. If you're blessed enough to be able to laze the day away, tuning into this video may be a pretty great way to do so. Check it out after the jump.
The hits just keep on coming for Marco Benevento's latest album, TigerFace, on the Royal Potato Family label. Check out the video for the single "This is How It Goes" featuring vocalist Kalmia Traver of Rubblebucket (not the instrumental version which can also be found on the album). The video, directed by Keith Adams, has a great home movie vibe to it. Check it out after the jump.
As Marco Benevento's TigerFace tour is making the rounds, little flashes of wonder are continually bubbling up. Check out video of Benevento's October 19th show is South Burlington, Vermont, at the Showcase Lounge in Higher Ground featuring drummer Jon Fishman of Phish (knowing Benevento, this was bound to happen at some point) sitting in for Andy Borger for Benevento's own "You Must Be a Lion" and the Deerhoof song, Twin Killers".
