In support of the recently announced re-release of The Cowboy's Prayer EP, out September 2nd on Other Music Recording Co., Mutual Benefit will embark on a massive fall tour starting the day after the EP's release in Richmond, VA.
Jordan Lee's Mutual Benefit debuted a new video for "Let's Play / Statue of a Man" this morning. Directed by Stefan Grabrowski, the video was shot over the span of 6 months in and around Boston using mostly analog equipment and some experimental developing techniques. The resulting images have a frenetic, but also organic quality to them evoking the very personal and soul-searching nature of the song.
After two minutes of gorgeous instrumental dips and swells, Jordan Lee introduces himself to you in “Strong River” by singing, “I clear my mind of joy and sorrow.” It is almost as if he is inviting you too to clear your mind of excess emotion before engaging in the next half hour of music on Love’s Crushing Diamond, the full-length debut from his songwriting project, Mutual Benefit.
