Product Details

Limited double vinyl LP pressing of this 2015 release. Benjamin Verdoes is a songwriter from the Pacific Northwest often known for his unorthodox approach to composition. The Evil Eye, which he began composing in 2011, is the first recording released under his own name. In cultures around the world "the evil eye" is believed to be negative energy that arises from malice or envy and is directed through an intense look or glance. Often, such a gaze is meant to bring harm upon its recipient. At the same time, "the evil eye" is the name of an object created for protection or as a remedy against this dangerous force. It can take many forms and can be displayed in a variety of ways: a necklace, amulet, jewel, or charm. In the context of the record it is a symbolic gesture and literary device to describe the struggles and triumph of love. In that sense the record itself is the positive object of defense against negative energy and evil intentions. The songs are narrative, confessional, and deeply personal. Although the compositions themselves serve primarily to carry the meaning of the story, they are full of subtle sophistication and experimentation. The lyrics and metaphors are cross-referential, bilingual, bicultural, and overlap to create a narrative full of nuance and subtext. The result is a universal and timeless love story.
