Marco Benevento

Today, hallucinatory keyboard wizard Marco Benevento releases his latest studio effort, simply titled, Benevento (listen here) via his longstanding record label, Royal Potato Family. The 11-track collection presents 40-plus minutes of small-batch psychedelia, bubbled up from his home studio at the base of the Catskill Mountains in Woodstock, NY.  

Marco Benevento shares "Do You Want Some Magic," the fourth single from his upcoming album, simply titled, Benevento, due June 10 on Royal Potato Family. The hypnotic, five minute-plus krautrock homage is Benevento's reimagination of musical heroes like Can and Neu! It finds Benevento—revered as a virtuosic, genre-defying, experimental keyboardist—playing all of the parts.

A dance-floor-ready slice of psychedelic soul, Marco Benevento's latest single "Winter Rose" offers a silver lining in these troubled times with the zen-like refrain, "If every thorn came with a winter rose, then everything was worth it, yes, I suppose."

Today, Marco Benevento shares his latest single, "At The End Or The Beginning" (listen/share). Diving deep down a psych-funk rabbit hole, the singer/songwriter/keyboardist captures the zeitgeist with lyrics like "we can walk and keep our distance, the whole world changed in an instant," as he delivers a dose of blissed-out escapism where listeners can recontextualize these troubled times through a surrealistic-slanted optimism and the pure joy of an irresistible groove.
