The bearded Canadian looks as he sings: his hipster folk draws its strength from total easiness. This is how you need to take reality in order to not go crazy. Times are, traditionally for centuries, difficult, and Ben Caplan deals with serious matters.

The communicativeness of his songs comes, as usual in such cases, from the hard work put into their development, recording and presentation: the arrangements here are rich and diverse, referring to many cultural codes (Ashkenazi Jews, tough highlanders from the Appalachians, wandering bluesmen), and the performance is bold, calculated for a strong stage effect.

These songs, sung and sometimes shouted in the voice of just a bit less tired Tom Waits, talk about love, loneliness, the great History that breaks lives, and about life itself.
