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.
