Album Notes
“The genre-blurring tunes are dark and brooding, drawing on muses like Nine Inch Nails" (Current Magazine 2013). A confessional theme pulsates throughout "Truth & Light" on songs like “The Ghost & The Girl," a stripped-down, spiritual track describing the nightmare—and the art—of letting go. Synth-composer Jason Reed Milner’s early Trent Reznor influences are evident on “You Don’t Know Me,” a track overlaid with Benson’s raw alto howl. Paying homage to David Gahan, she evokes a sinister, soulful mood on the single, “The Wound,” which is balanced by Milner’s foreboding, floor-shaking synth soundscape.

About the Band:
The Sweetest Condition is a female-fronted American synthpop and electronic rock band from Nashville, TN.

Band Members:
Leslie I. Benson (vox/lyrics):
Half-peeled, this songstress has traded in her heels for steel toe boots. For her, The Sweetest Condition means fight or flight. She's an artist, an observer, a student, a teacher, and a survivor. Her mission involves lifting up others to the light, while her own demons nip at her toes. She’s empowered to grace by writing what she feels. Her words come from a vulnerable, very real place.

Jason Reed Milner (keys/synth):
An adventurer with a chip on his shoulder, this synth composer has run the gamut from frontman to producer and back. The gearhead of the group, his mathematical brain computes numbers and figures like a mad scientist. He can design blueprints for almost any creation, bringing visions to life—a real musical Doctor Frankenstein. His reach is all-encompassing. He turns words into music with the first touch of his keys, channeling emotion through his instrument like a medium. His ghosts are hidden, though present, and creep through when wit is a dish best served cold.
