The married musical couple Ben + Vesper offer up their second LP of pop adventurousness this January with the release of Honors.

The married musical couple Ben + Vesper offer up their second LP of pop adventurousness this month with the release of Honors coming on the uber-packed released day of January 25th via Sounds Familyre Records. The group has taken its time over the past few years to compose these new pop gems in the four years since the lauded debut, All This Could Kill You. Despite the time Ben Stamper spent writing the new songs, the couple opted for a five-day recording session to lend immediacy to the performances. Ben + Vesper’s is filled out with John Mosloskie on bass and Steve Oyola on drums, as well as the incomparable Sufjan Stevens lending vital keyboard work throughout the record.
