While most of Benjamin Cartel’s lyrics draw upon either his own experiences or those of his friends, the Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter’s sophomore album Flickering Light also boasts its share of cinematic influences. The title track was inspired by the Woody Allen film Broadway Danny Rose, another by Jimmy Stewart’s spiraling plummet in Hitchcock’s Vertigo. Released a few weeks ago on the Mother West label, the album is an impressive collection from an artist that spent years collaborating with Courtney Kaiser in KaiserCartel, whose alt-country sound frequently earned them comparisons to Emmylou Harris and Gram Parsons. On his own, Cartel embraces a more diverse range of sonic influences, including The Beatles, the Velvet Underground and various ‘70s pop bands, in sometimes oblique but always engaging ways.
