Germany Review: BEN LANG “MODERN MAN EP”

Click here to listen!

Click here to read more at RockTimes!

Translated from German:  “The tracks presented here are loosely and easily shot from the hip, have good melodies, pep and conjure up a smile on the lips of the attentive listener with their sometimes ironic-funny lyrics.

There is a cool nonchalance to the songs, without appearing relaxed or sleepy in any way. In fact, it is almost basically quite brisk, even if this has to be seen in the context of an acoustic guitar. In [the track] ‘Modern Man’ this moves almost prancing with fine picking, supplemented in the background by vigorous but restrained bass and drums accompaniment, which unfortunately only lasts three and a half minutes. This is really good material, the positive charisma of which the listener can hardly escape.

No question: Provided that the American has another dozen tracks of this quality up his sleeve, he is pretty ripe for his debut album. Therefore: Push Modern Man EP into the system, set the desired volume and have fun with it!”

Markus Kerren, RockTimes

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.

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.”

UK Review: BEN LANG “MODERN MAN EP”

Click here to listen!

“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.”

-Zeitgeist – The Rocker

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.
