Benjamin Lazar Davis Shares Stream of Debut Solo Album “Nothing Matters,” Out This Friday

Benjamin Lazar Davis (Okkervil River, Cuddle Magic) is sharing an advance stream of his debut solo album Nothing Matters, which is out this Friday and features collaborations with Kimbra, Alex Toth of Rubblebucket, and Bridget Kearney of Lake Street Dive. The record’s charming pop sounds have been winning over early fans at NPR, KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic, and Consequence of Sound, among others, and Gold Flake Paint, who premiered the album stream, call it “something both textured and terrific; a varied pop record that takes on various faces but feels bound by something unseen; a lightness of touch like gossamer unseen.”


Nothing Matters is out May 4 on 11A Records and is available for pre-order now.

Benjamin Lazar Davis will be on tour this spring in the UK in support of Anna & Elizabeth and the U.S. pulling double duty playing bass with and opening for Okkervil River.
