Royal Oaks: Hopscotch EP (Self-released)
I first met Benjamin Oaks in Portland in 2009 after living here for about a year. We hit it off over cocktails and a conversation about Wolfgang Voigt and Stars of the Lid. Since then, it’s been cool to see his own music evolve and expand. He’s been quietly creating and releasing songs independently since well before we met, but his newest tracks are some of his finest to date. He has a new mini-album in the works that promises to be his best work yet, if the previews he’s floated my way are any indication. Something to look forward to in 2012!
