It’s a Mutual Benefit

Sometimes you just know. Like the way you know about a good pair of jeans. The way you know about a ripe mango, when it’s going to be a good night, or when you meet someone and you just know you are going to be friends. That’s the way you know about a good band. That’s what happened when I first heard Mutual Benefit.

When I saw the Take Away Show on La Blogotheque (a favourite website of mine) and I heard the soft croon of Jordan Lee’s voice, I just knew.

Now let me introduce you to Mutual Benefit based out of Brooklyn, NY. Lead singer, Jordan Lee is sometimes on his own and other times a part of a musical collective, depending on the day and who is in his company. He is a talented musician who runs a music label and is often touring with friend’s bands.  Mutual Benefit‘s recent album Love’s Crushing Diamond has been met with critical acclaim. He is going on tour this summer and will be playing shows alongside another great band, Wild Beasts.

Mutual Benefit will be hitting Pitchfork Music Festival and Hopscotch Music Festival. You can see them in Montreal on July 15th at the Corona Theatre or in Toronto on June 19th at NXNE .
