Creaking and lurching with synthetic grooves, Ben Shemie’s lo-fi psychedelic textures careen across genres boundaries, producing pop music at the outer edges of harmony. There’s a sense of enormous potential in his liminal sounds—avant-garde, cavernous exercises in rhythm and song that are chaotically unpredictable yet strangely familiar.
