HSAL #25: Benjamin Mauch, “For My Friends” CASS $5 (+ S/H)
Benjamin Mauch is somewhat of an expatriate from the Old Dominion, currently residing in South Korea. Prior to his move abroad, Mauch grew up along the fall line & attended university in the foothills of the Blue Ridge (that’s about as “Virginia” as it gets). “For My Friends” was birthed out of close relationships formed during post-secondary education. Ambient tones & paths carved out with simple instruments (keys, guitar, laptop) are Mauch’s mode of communication.
Originally self-released, HSAL fell hard for this collection & sought out the chance to give “Friends” a physical release.
AVAILABILITY: gray cassette + digital download, run of 50
