Worlds Away – Benjamin Schoos (2012)
– from the album “China Man vs China Girl”
A classic piece of alternative retro 60’s style pop given a modern production and sweeping arrangement. I know very little about Benjamin Schoos (sometimes known by the pseudonym Miam Monster Miam) except that he is from Belgium (you can count their pop idols on one hand), he runs a supposedly cool record label called Freaksville and produces loads of this string laden style pop.
Random Fact: Belgium has one of the lowest proportion of McDonald’s restaurants per inhabitant in the developed world, with only 0.062 per 10,000 people, or 7x less than the USA, 4x less than Japan, and twice less than France or Germany. Got to love them for that …non?
