It’s impossible not to hear freedom and excitement coursing through the veins of Marco Benevento’s 7th 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 uplifting sound he describes as “hot dance piano rock.” The songs are driven by intoxicating grooves, with spare drums and minimalist bass lines underpinning infectious, lo-fi vocal hooks. The vibe is timeless, filtering elements of vintage R&B and soul through indie rock and pop sensibilities and peppering it with adventurous improvisation that Benevento’s come to be celebrated. Benevento’s released seven acclaimed solo albums over the last decade, performed everywhere from Carnegie Hall and Newport Jazz to Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo and worked with the likes of Richard Swift (The Shins, The Arcs), Jon Brion (Spoon, Aimee Mann), A.C. Newman (The New Pornographers), and Simone Felice (The Felice Brothers, The Lumineers) among others. "It’s safe to say that no one sees the keyboard quite like Marco Benevento's genre-blind mashup of indie rock, jazz and skewed improvisation," the LA Times raved. NPR said he combines "the thrust of rock, the questing of jazz and the experimental ecstasy of jam," and Rolling Stone praised "the textures and colors available in his keyboards and arsenal of manipulated pedals and effects," along with his "deceptively rich, catchy melodies and straight-ahead grooves."
