I Love (Ben Lee's) Pop Music

Here's the video for the first single from Ben Lee's latest album, The Rebirth of Venus, due to hit shelves on the 27th. For any readers who've been around for a while can attest, I'm a huge Ben fan, and am hoping to catch him on tour next month. As the title of this post suggests, you'll still find some of Ben's jingle jangly fun-for-all pop goodness here, but it's been tempered with some mature concerns about the world around us that come through fairly heavy in a few tracks. I think our little Ben's all grown up!

Here's a cut from the album that you can check out and take with you now:

Visit his website, his label New West Records, and become his friend on MySpace.

My sentiments exactly: I love pop music, too. I mean, I like Iggy, and the Clash and other decidedly non-pop stuff, but, man, a killer hook and cool melody always gets me.
