Radical Face

Radical Face - A Pound Of Flesh
Radical Face - Black Eyes

North Florida native-son Ben Cooper, ie: Radical Face, crafts beautiful/delicate pop songs with mucho melodies and insightful themes - admittedly not the best to drink to (unless it's in a nostalgic setting, all ghost-of-your-former-self style) - but it's still something we're not gonna pass up on... especially after falling in love with the breathtakingly sublime Ghost full-length* a few years back. The Roots is the first release in the impending Family Tree trilogy, and if you pay close attention, you'll notice a series of common conceptual narratives swirling amidst all of the plunking piano and strings and breathless, whispering choruses.

* Be sure to check out the equally enchanting video for Welcome Home from said release, available after the jump.

The Family Tree: The Roots will be released on October 4th, via Radical Face
