New Treat #39: Benjamin Francis Leftwich

This is certainly not the first time I have written about Benjamin Francis Leftwitch. He seems to pop up all over the place, first on the Communion record and he has also recorded a (really great!) cover of Arcade Fire’s ‘Rebellion (Lies)’ which you can have a listen to below. Continuously going from strength to strength, his gentle melodious songwriting could be compared to Fink of Bon Iver. He released his second EP ‘Pictures’ not long ago and also supported Noah & the Whale on tour. His debut album ‘Last Smoke before the Snow storm’ is due in summer. The soundcloud link below is for a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Atlantic City’ which you can download for free in exchange for an email address off his website.
