ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Here's what people are saying about Andrew Benon and his debut record Rock and Roll Moves:

“She lives and dies in the dancefloor lights"

Andrew Benon has crafted a pitch perfect recreation of great 80's pop with this track. From the Bowie-esque vocals to the screaming saxophone to the sparkling synths, Rock And Roll Moves deserves to be the summer anthem of convertible drivers everywhere. It almost sounds like it was written by Prince back in his eighties hey day, especially the flawless chorus. Best of all, Andrew Benon's debut effort is full of this kind of stuff. Many artists (especially on this blog) draw from the eighties for their sound, but few have been as believable as Benon is. Lyrically, Moves is very clever as well, which is always a pleasant surprise in pop music. Finally, on a related note: I need those sunglasses."

"I Love the '80s (and so does Andrew Benon)

33-year-old songwriter Andrew Benon attributes his career choice to one particular evening as a youth, sitting in the backseat of his parent's car in a Pizza Hut parking lot. Suffering from stomach problems, little Andrew Benon was in pain until Hall & Oates "Kiss On My List" started playing on the car radio. That's when he realized that he wanted to be a rock star.

Many years later, Benon, a Minnesota native, has released his debut, a compact 7-song CD titled Rock and Roll Moves. Before pontificating on the actual music, let me just say that for a debut by an artist not known out of his own zip code, 7 songs is the PERFECT length. Bravo on that alone, Mr. Benon. Bravo.

The music on the CD is an homage to mid-80s FM pop radio. Benon's vocals sound like Bowie's from the "Let's Dance"/"Blue Jean" period of Ziggy Stardust's career while the music falls somewhere between the new wave Brit-pop synth keyboard sounds of Duran Duran and the booty-shaking funk of the almighty Purple One, Prince. In other words, this is the ideal soundtrack to an afternoon at the roller rink. Oh yeah, did I forget to mention that members of Tapes N' Tapes, Mike Doughty's band, N.E.R.D. and Prince's band lay down the smooth funk sound on the CD? Dig it my brothers and sisters, dig it in all of it's 1985 glory."

Can't stop singin' it.
Mr Benon, your music is like the 80's met the 90's and the 00's and then forgot the word irony was in the dictionary. Delicious.
