Songs rarely reach such heartwarming, comforting heights as those by folk outfit, Mutual Benefit.  The 7 track debut album, Love’s Crushing Diamond, released on October 25th, is an experiment in capturing a natural, deconstructed approach to each song while still having every component embrace and encircle the other.  The rustic tones and humble choruses generate a familial element, as though you are joining a family as they play songs together after Thanksgiving dinner.  “Advanced Falconry,” the first single off of Love’s Crushing Diamond, is about as good as a love poem can get (And oh the way she moves / always on the run / and to look into her eyes / will make a fool of anyone), and is enhanced by a fragile, patient melody that melts into the background.   Man, I really need a hug right now.  Enjoy.
