Constellations
(independent)
South shore trio Alan Benjamin sounds like it’s struggling to find an identity. Is it an indie band with a penchant for big-rock vocal posing? Or closet Puddle of Mudd fans with limited recording devices that lead to a lo-fi aesthetic? If you read the lyrics (references to decay, parasites and isolation) you’d think they were raised on Nine Inch Nails. Maybe the right producer could mash it all together, but this debut, while exceedingly imaginative in places, needs more than a little refinement.
