Benji Hughes: “Freaky Feedback Blues”

Benji Hughes is a North Carolina musician who’s an absolute shape-shifter. For years, he’s followed his muse wherever it’s led him, whether that’s a double LP debut album called A Love Extreme, penning a Captain Morgan jingle, or popping up on a Jeff Bridges record. He’s done soul, funk, country balladry, and electro rave-ups, all cut with a wink and a “let’s just have a good time” vibe.

Hughes’ new Songs In The Key Of Animals–out now via Merge–is his first proper album in eight years, but it picks up where the Beck-esque party left off. Meshell Ndegeocello backs him up on “Freaky Feedback Blues,” a boozy blue-eyed soul cut that would pair well with a beer-filled late night. Download the song below.
