It has also been announced that Benevento’s label, The Royal Potato Family, will reissue his debut studio album, Invisible Baby, on limited edition blue LP for Record Store Day 2013. The recording, which was originally released in 2008, turns five this year. It includes the songs “Bus Ride,” “The Real Morning Party” and “Atari” that have become staples in Benevento’s repertoire.   Upon its initial release, David Fricke of Rolling Stone wrote: “On Invisible Baby, Benevento sculpts his pieces with playful weirdness (the insect-dance hook of ‘The Real Morning Party’) and addresses the melodies and spaces in ‘Ruby’ and ‘You Must Be a Lion’ with heated grace. He can go long and wild: swinging between rude-synth fun and high-speed piano breaks as if he were both Keith Emerson and McCoy Tyner.”
