Born (accidentally) in Canada, raised in Blackpool and now hiding in Melbourne, polarizing anti-genre artist Benjamin Shaw returns with a new long player Megadead.

Sitting somewhere between Smog and Four Tet, it is a wonderfully miserable album of disarmingly accessible songs filled with fuzz, brittle melodies, looping guitars, ‘80s synth, self-sabotage, self-doubt, violent fantasy and uncertain swagger.

The album will be released on the 31st August through Audio Antihero (US/UK) and Kirigirisu Recordings (Japan), it’s a wild amalgamation of his previous work, blurring burned-out lo-fi, electronic pop, glimmering keys, field recordings, aching words, layered noise and uncompromising experimentalism.

Check out first (free) single Terrible Feelings below.

    Now that’s just good writing.

    Actually THAT’s just good writing.
