Mutual Benefit

Love's Crushing Diamond

It's no exaggeration to say that 'Love's Crushing Diamond' by Jordan Lee, who records as Mutual Benefit, may be the most beautiful record you'll hear all year. Lee's lyrics are intimate, poetic, and heart-warming; often filled with Buddhist-like musings on life and relationships. Think a mix of the beauty of Bon Iver, Youth Lagoon's 'The Year of Hibernation' balanced with the intimate, gentle grandeur of Sufjan Steven's Seven Swans. The album is Rustic, woozy and comforting.
Limited coloured Vinyl for indie shops only with Download including bonus EP 'The Cowboy's Prayer'.
