Mutual Benefit signs to Transgressive Records and announces new album

We're very happy to announce that Mutual Benefit has signed with Transgressive Records.

Mutual Benefit’s work has been praised as being vulnerable and warm-hearted. This new album, his debut for Transgressive, has a similar sensibility, patiently built from carefully chosen lines illustrated by lush astral folk and intricately composed arrangements that manage to appear effortless.

Skip a Sinking Stone follows the success of Mutual Benefit’s debut studio full-length, Love’s Crushing Diamond, with Lee now settled into a life that passes as steady. The first half of the record, awash in warm string arrangements and hope, is written about the year that followed: Mutual Benefit’s rotating cast of friends and collaborators is touring non-stop, playing professional stages and festivals, and Lee is in love.
 
The second half of the album finds Lee in New York, in a rare position of having the time and resources to work on the new record full-time. Lee lives and records at the Silent Barn, breaking from his usual nomadic lifestyle to explore staying in one place, reflected musically by a comparative stillness and introspection. 

Mutual Benefit’s Skip a Sinking Stone is out 20th May on Transgressive, and available for pre-order now
