Aural Attak: The Benjamins – The Art of Disappointment

The Benjamins have a wildly upbeat and positive sound; it’s this sort of mid-winter Wisconsin optimism (the band is from Milwaukee). It’s punk-rock in the Lagwagon fashion. They sound a bit like Weezer, I guess. The lyrics are smart, funny and somewhat depressed. The optimism and a teen-movie romanticism shines through, though. Everything about this album should make you smile. I got the album at the 2001 Warped Tour from the band’s booth. They gave me a bunch of other trinkets, too, but the beer bottle opener broke and the bumper sticker ended up on the front of my computer. It is a shame they have since broken up.

  1. Couch

  3. Sophia on the Stereo
