  • John Yingling
  • Ben Scott playing with Brain Idea

Ben Scott, who plays bass and sings in local indie-rock trio Brain Idea, is introducing a cool new side project. (You might remember the name Brain Idea from this summer, when Scott’s fellow front man, Joe Wetteroth, interviewed Kurt Vile for the Pitchfork edition of Artist on Artist.) Rather than build on the technical, heady sounds of Brain Idea, Scott’s side project leans toward sunny pop.
