It's impossible not to hear freedom and excitement coursing through the veins of Marco Benevento's new studio album, 'Let It Slide.' Produced by Leon Michels (The Arcs, Lee Fields), the record introduces a gritty, soulful edge to Benevento's brand of high-octane keyboard wizardry — an uptempo, uplifting sound he playfully describes as "hot dance piano rock." For all Benevento's virtuosity on the keys though, the songs here are driven primarily by intoxicating grooves, with spare drums and minimalist basslines underpinning infectious, intentionally lo-fi vocal hooks. The resulting vibe is a timeless one, filtering elements of vintage R&B and soul through modern indie rock and pop sensibilities and peppering it with the kind of adventurous improvisation that Benevento's come to be celebrated for worldwide.
