*** Ben Watt will be playing a special in-store show on thursday 21st april at 6:30pm - pre-order 'fever dream' and receive two free guest passes'

dealing with his middle age and built from musings on love and loves lost ‘fever dream’ is brutally honest, poetic & cautiously optimistic.

it’s far from a straightforward autobiographical work, however  - it’s a rewarding listen that benefits deeply from his elegant philosophies on loss, love and all in-between. Watt has surrounded himself with some top quality players: Bernard Butler’s guitar again provides the grit, Marissa Nadler & Hiss Golden Messenger's M.C. Taylor feature, Rex Horan (Laura Marling’s band) is on double bass & Martin Ditcham (Talk Talk) is the sticks man. this able band make light of a sound that's more complex than it might 1st appear. “age may wither us, watt seems to be testifying, but it needn’t provoke us to burn out or fade away” – 9/10 uncut.
