Mutual Benefit

Fresh buzz for Mutual Benefit

A set of highly orchestrated folk music, constructed from a private playground of strange and wonderful sounds, star-gazing wonder, and tear-jerking harmonies, Mutual Benefit's debut LP 'Love's Crushing Diamond' has been deservedly getting a great deal of attention from tastemakers everywhere. Taken from tales of life lived on the road from singer/songwriter Jordan Lee, the record is the first album to be named Best New Music by Pitchfork based on a Bandcamp release alone. Now the record's appearing on everyone's top ten lists, and now I'm hastily re-doing my own list to make way for this ambitious record. Listen below to fave track 'Advanced Falconry,' and see Jordan Lee and his collective of musicians gathered from all the places where he lived (Ohio, Boston, Austin) when they return from tour to play at Mercury Lounge on Feb 7.

From the Open Blog: Lizard Kisses plays Blue Warbler House on 10.18

We found this lo-fi, self produced music video for Lizard Kisses' "Close" (off their forthcoming album) in our Open Blog and were intrigued by it. On Tuesday September 18th, the band will be performing in at Blue Warbler House in Brooklyn alongside best buds Mutual Benefit and Kevin Greenspon. It will be a small intimate show with accompanying projections. - (as posted in The Deli's Open Blog - post your band's entries, videos, and Mp3s here).
