405 Focus: Benjamin Shaw

405 Focus: Benjamin Shaw

by The 405 (Google+), 01 December 2011

If a picture really is worth a thousand words, then Benjamin Shaw's 'Fill Me In' feature speaks volumes. It was creative, funny, dark and strangely optimistic - all characteristics of his music and his latest album There’s Always Hope, There’s Always Cabernet.

We caught up with Shaw at Ryan's Bar in Stoke Newington to talk about the album, his inspirations, David Cameron, hope and noise. He also performed 'How To Test The Depth Of A Well'.

You can watch the interview/session below, or via our new TV Section. It's also available via our Vimeo and Youtube pages.

If you fancy listening to the interview/session without the visuals, you can do so here:

405 Focus was recorded/edited by Louise and George Nindi.

    In our review of Porcelain Raft's latest album, 405 writer Paul Kerr went a long way towards explaining the world that Mauro Remiddi has managed to create with Strange Weekend, though it seems like Remiddi considers the process as a "work in progress." The idea of approaching an album with the idea of capturing two days (a weekend) - rather than making something timeless - also explains a lot about the movement found in the album. [read more]
