Tweet of the Week 3/13: Akkilles
If we’ve learned anything about David Bennett (aka Akkilles) over the past year, it’s that he’s insanely prodigious. That applies not only to his songwriting and producing abilities but also to his recent twitter output.
Keeping in that same vein, last week he shared a 20 track collection of demos through soundcloud. Dropping that much content on unsuspecting fans feels reminiscent of similar acts by Ryan Adams, Ty Segall and Bradford Cox in their heyday, each of which figures into the content of Bennett’s music as well. The demos run the gamut from hushed, acoustic confessionals to atmospheric electronic soundscapes and prefigure the official upcoming release that has been hinted at by Bennett and co. While many of the tracks sound spare, they could easily be mistaken for the finished product.
Working on the next formal release… But in the meantime, here are a bunch of tracks from the last year or so:
