Ben Wright Smith Shares The Playlist That Inspired His Latest EP
Ben Wright Smith released his latest EP Psychotropical last week and was kind enough to share the playlist that inspired him!
Ben wrapped up a huge run of shows last year and had incredible success with his singles, most notably ‘Storm Boy’ from his latest EP. Psychotropical is the first in a series of three that will be released together on vinyl in 2019. It’s a new take on releasing music but it’s a great way to stay relevant and give his fans a consistent run of music for them to sink their teeth into.
Working with some real Australian music heavy weights on the EP, he’s pulled together a body of work that’s both fantastic lyrically but also sonically. Ben shared the songs that inspired Psychotropical and the eclectic mix is a perfect representation of the EP.
Some of the songs include:
D.R. Hookers – ‘Weather Girl’
The Beach Boys – ‘Little Bird’
Crepes – ‘Hidden Star’
The Blank Tapes – ‘Brazilia’
Dorothy Ashby – ‘Soul Vibrations’
Listen to the full playlist here. We’re keen to see Ben take this latest EP on the road hopefully in the new year!
