Canada Review: BEN LANG “MODERN MAN EP”

Click here to listen!

Click here to read more at DMME.net – Let It Rock!

Experienced singer-songwriter starts embracing his own personality and his own time.

‘Houston-New Orleans’ comes across as an upbeat travelogue as a steady thump and catchy strum underpin the Port Arthur-born, San Rafael-based musician’s deceptively deadpan delivery – an account of a contemporary cowboy’s woes – before sweet communal harmonies wash over the cut’s chorus, while the twangy title track rocks a lovers’ lane with a gentle swagger set up by a full-group arrangement, and the transparent ‘Nailin’ It’ channels romanticism through a fragile echo chamber. Lang’s conversational approach will reach the apex on ‘Hollow Spaces’ where his simple lines feel most intimate, but it’s followed by the hoedown-fit ‘Tee Off With Your Head’ that induces a smile on the listener’s face and welcomes the short lullaby-like ditty ‘Mr. Moon’ – the ‘Midnight Special’ for our times.

There’s a concept lurking here, and if Lang is ready to present it on an LP his solo debut is a rather promising precursor to this new phase of Ben’s career.”

-DMME.net – Let It Rock

BEN LANG is a singer-songwriter from San Rafael, CA. His debut solo release MODERN MAN EP offers six finely crafted alternative-acoustic tracks written and performed entirely by BEN LANG, with expressive lyrics and a slight country feel akin to artists as varied as Violent Femmes, Paul Simon, or Willie Nelson. MODERN MAN EP was released on Black Friday 2020 and is available now everywhere music is streamed and sold. There was also a MODERN MAN EP VIRTUAL RELEASE SHOW broadcast online to coincide with the release the same day, giving fans the chance to see a live performance of each song.

After playing in bands for several years and putting out a few different albums, BEN LANG branched out on his own as a solo performer in 2017 and began playing an assortment of mellow covers and originals at local restaurants, weddings, parties, and open mics. As he crafted more original material, he began to make plans for MODERN MAN EP, his first solo release. MODERN MAN EP was then recorded, mixed, and mastered by his good friend Matt Cope in his home studio between 2018 and 2020.

To coincide with the release, BEN LANG partnered with Gabriel Lamb and Digital Lamb Productions to produce a MODERN MAN EP VIRTUAL RELEASE SHOW. The concert broadcast online on Black Friday 2020 at 5:30 PM PST, giving fans the chance to kick back and relax that evening with some Thanksgiving leftovers while enjoying a live BEN LANG performance of each new MODERN MAN EP song.

Originally from the southeast Texas town of Port Arthur, BEN LANG was raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, where he still hangs his hat with his big dog Boone by his side. Like many, he fell in love with music as a teenager, and began learning everything he could about bass and guitar with dreams of rock stardom in his head every night. Together with Paggi (aka Dan Paggi), also a notable Pacific Northwest artist, BEN LANG was a founding member of the San Francisco cult classic band Biv and the Mnemonics (aka Roy G Biv & The Mnemonic Devices), whose albums The Blue Orange (2009) and The Pace (2013) were released to critical acclaim and still resonate today. Together they also founded the independent label Moo Moo Records, and continue to release and market new projects partnered with Independent Distribution Collective (IDC).

As a solo artist, BEN LANG performs every Friday at the Le Chalet Basque restaurant in San Rafael, or at the occasional show, party, wedding, or open mic around town. He also plays bass with the Bay Area’s best rockers Secret Lives (aka The Gene Immens Project), whose solid mix of hard-rocking originals and crowd-pleasing covers brings an electric charge to every show. Throughout the years BEN LANG has performed in other bands including Azalea Drive, Moblad, and The Devil’s Chord.

MODERN MAN EP is available now everywhere music is streamed and sold.

UK Review: BEN LANG “MODERN MAN EP”

Click here to listen!

Click here to read more at Zeitgeist – The Rocker!

“He’s been about a bit has Ben Lang, as a founding member of an assortment of other bands, but [Modern Man EP] sees him in solo troubadour mode. And it’s enjoyable. It’s acoustic singer / songwriter stuff with a helping of country. Well he does originally come from Texas. He rarely gets out of a canter but that’s how it’s supposed to be with this sort of reflective material. He’s not a singer (in capital letters) but has a world-weary voice that in a few places is reminiscent of Lou Reed.

Certainly he’s a strong songwriter and all of the songs have their moments in the sun. The best of them is probably ‘Houston-New Orleans,’ the opening number, which certainly sets out his stall. The guitar playing is uniformly excellent and the production while nominally straightforward still manages to throw in a few, well thought out moments where you go ‘ooh.’ A good one.”

US Review: BEN LANG “MODERN MAN EP”

Click here to listen!

Click here to read more at The Daily Vault!

“This is a six-song EP that showcases the songwriting talent of Ben Lang. Lang is a Texas native who grew up in San Francisco, and plays rockin’ country music. His songs have a very acoustic and laidback feel. Lang has a very gentle approach to songwriting, and he’s clearly having fun with what he does.

The songs are catchy. The EP starts with “Houston-New Orleans,” a very upbeat track. The title cut “Modern Man” slows things down a bit, but it’s a song with definite charisma and personality. “Nailin’ It” breaks it down even more when it comes to that stripped-down feeling. Once again, Lang’s charisma carries it and leaves you in a very reflective mood. “Hollow Spaces” continues in this great spirit.  By “Tee Off With Your Head,” things speed up, but the mood remains. It’s a very mathematical song with some cool Willie Nelson influences. The EP closes with “Mr. Moon,” and it’s a track that let’s you down easy with its gentle stomping.

Lang’s music has a lot of room to breath, and he presents it in a very easy-going way.  It’s a country with an alternative edge. His influences show up here and there, but they manage not to corrupt the overall idea. These songs are very fitting to be played in a very intimate place where the artists can connect with the audience and maybe tell some funny stories as to how these tracks came to be. 

I like the cover of this EP because the title does not fit the drawing completely. You see a cowboy on a horse with a dog overlooking a canyon. There’s nothing modern about it; the man isn’t holding a brand new phone and texting, but enjoying a ride through nature. It can be interpreted in variety of ways, but I do enjoy the traditional old feel of the painting. Modern Man is a very laidback affair. Ben Lang shows a lot of potential, and he’s definitely onto something.  It will be interesting to see what transpires next.”

US Review: BEN LANG “MODERN MAN EP”

Click here to listen!

Click here to read more at JP’s Music Blog!

Modern Man EP features six tracks filled with great words, melody and highlighted by a ‘do-it-yourself’ flavor to the music. The up-tempo strumming of ‘Houston-New Orleans’ kicks things off with a nostalgic sounding, Village Vanguard-style delivery. His words find their way to your heart during the singing of ‘Nailin’ It,’ before Ben Lang closes out his new album with the quick folk-style strumming of ‘Tee Off With Your Head’ and the short blues of ‘Mr Moon.’

BEN LANG is a singer-songwriter from San Rafael, CA. His debut solo release MODERN MAN EP offers six finely crafted alternative-acoustic tracks written and performed entirely by BEN LANG, with expressive lyrics and a slight country feel akin to artists as varied as Violent Femmes, Paul Simon, or Willie Nelson. MODERN MAN EP was released on Black Friday 2020 and is available now everywhere music is streamed and sold. There was also a MODERN MAN EP VIRTUAL RELEASE SHOW broadcast online to coincide with the release the same day, giving fans the chance to see a live performance of each song.

After playing in bands for several years and putting out a few different albums, BEN LANG branched out on his own as a solo performer in 2017 and began playing an assortment of mellow covers and originals at local restaurants, weddings, parties, and open mics. As he crafted more original material, he began to make plans for MODERN MAN EP, his first solo release. MODERN MAN EP was then recorded, mixed, and mastered by his good friend Matt Cope in his home studio between 2018 and 2020.

To coincide with the release, BEN LANG partnered with Gabriel Lamb and Digital Lamb Productions to produce a MODERN MAN EP VIRTUAL RELEASE SHOW. The concert broadcast online on Black Friday 2020 at 5:30 PM PST, giving fans the chance to kick back and relax that evening with some Thanksgiving leftovers while enjoying a live BEN LANG performance of each new MODERN MAN EP song.

Originally from the southeast Texas town of Port Arthur, BEN LANG was raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, where he still hangs his hat with his big dog Boone by his side. Like many, he fell in love with music as a teenager, and began learning everything he could about bass and guitar with dreams of rock stardom in his head every night. Together with Paggi (aka Dan Paggi), also a notable Pacific Northwest artist, BEN LANG was a founding member of the San Francisco cult classic band Biv and the Mnemonics (aka Roy G Biv & The Mnemonic Devices), whose albums The Blue Orange (2009) and The Pace (2013) were released to critical acclaim and still resonate today. Together they also founded the independent label Moo Moo Records, and continue to release and market new projects partnered with Independent Distribution Collective (IDC).

As a solo artist, BEN LANG performs every Friday at the Le Chalet Basque restaurant in San Rafael, or at the occasional show, party, wedding, or open mic around town. He also plays bass with the Bay Area’s best rockers Secret Lives (aka The Gene Immens Project), whose solid mix of hard-rocking originals and crowd-pleasing covers brings an electric charge to every show. Throughout the years BEN LANG has performed in other bands including Azalea Drive, Moblad, and The Devil’s Chord.

MODERN MAN EP is available now everywhere music is streamed and sold.
