Brendan Benson: “Tiny Spark” (2002)

Teenage Fanclub, Matthew Sweet and McCartney’s solo work are good points of reference for Brendan Benson’s jangly, melodic power pop.

Benson’s solo career has been unjustly overlooked; he may be best known for his work with Jack White as a member of the Raconteurs. But “Tiny Spark” sounds like a hit single from an alternative reality in which the sound of the Raspberries was never swept from the radio.
