One Mississippi by Brendan Benson

Some may have discovered Benson thanks to his team-up with Jack White in The Raconteurs.

With help from Jason Falkner of Jellyfish, Brendan Benson crafted a fine if overlong debut album in 1996′s One Mississippi. Some of us may have discovered Benson thanks to his team-up with Jack White in The Raconteurs, but he had a number of solo releases to his name by that point, and One Mississippi shows the promise of what was to come. Like so many 90s albums, the first half was satisfying while the back half became less focused and felt padded, but there is still plenty to like about this power-pop debut, brought to us thanks to a twelve-month Patreon anniversary pick by past guest Keith Sawyer.
