Ben Kenney Releases Solo Album, “Must Be Nice”
Incubus bassist Ben Kenney has released his sixth solo album, Must Be Nice. The record features seven original compositions with Kenney performing all of the instruments and vocals.
Similar to Incubus, there are some groove-oriented rock songs, but Must Be Nice has a nice variety of textures. The opener, “Over Me,” utilizes a wall of sound with sparse riffing to create atmosphere, while “Red Hots” drives things with manic unison bass and guitar riffs. Kenney also dives into synth bass on “The Flying Nurse” and ambient textures for “Sidereal.” Be sure to check out “Heavy” for a tasty bass solo.
