thanks to jessica for writing about the mutual benefit show last night. we’re playing all around these united states this month if you wanna get in on the sound making and listening and stuff.
Last night at Matt, Becky and Dans house in Bushwick. Ate way too many avocados, cozied up on the floor of their small railroad apt with far too many nice hip faces to fit logically in that space, but luckily we’re not logical and we all fit perfectly. Was pleasantly surprised to discover the skinny small boy standing with his guitar and loop peddle before us turned into a magical machine of music that brought the entire room to absolute silence for the 45 minute set. A mix between Devendra Banhart, the Beatles, and Iron and Wine if they met at an experimental jam session with synthesizers. Sounds kinda like a mermaid was looped behind some crazy noises with some wolf sounds and yeah it was the best shit I’ve heard in years, I’m now obsessed with Mutual Benefit, unfortunately for those of us with CD players, he’s on a tape label, so go get a cassette player now.
