Benjamin Booker: Violent Shiver

I just discovered Benjamin Booker and I must say that his self-titled album is quite possibly the best record I have heard in ages. I have been looking for new guitar centered music and I stumbled across him while listening to Shakey Graves on youtube.  His music is both explosive and moving with its blues/soul/garage centric vibe.

One of the best songs on his incredible album is “Violent Shiver” which has one of the most catchiest and amazing riffs ever with its fast paced tempo.  Check out his stunning live performance on David Letterman above.
