Mutual Benefit's Jordan Lee makes soft-touching folk music that sounds like photographs and shadowboxes of time since past. This track, “'Let's Play'/Statue of a Man” has the sounds of kids toys, friends laughing, and dual female/male vocals, making it a nostalgic track as captivating as memories of summer camp. That little knot that gets in your stomach when thinking back on those days comes just as easily while listening to Mutual Benefit and will surely carry through in the entire recod. Be prepared to feel long-dormant feelings.
Love's Crushing Diamond will be available through Other Music Recording Co. on December 3.
