The music of Mutual Benefit always seems to emerge from an especially complicated loom, with heartbreaking, massed vocals, soaring strings, gingerly plucked guitars, and tickled pianos flowing together in a single, dream-like stream. Choir, lounge act, and doo-wop jags swirl in and out of the compositions of Jordan Lee and his compatriots in a way that seems less predetermined than happy happenstance. Debut Love's Crushing Diamond deserved greater notice than it received upon last year’s release, but rest assured that the group's bandwagon will swell over time.
