Mutual Benefit Announces First 2014 UK Tour

Mutual Benefit AKA Jordan Lee has announced his first full UK tour, with dates in Manchester, Glasgow and Leeds completed by a show at London's Union Chapel in May. This tour follows Mutual Benefit's first UK show, at St. John's Church on 4th March, which sold out two months in advance.

The songs on Love's Crushing Diamond are heartfelt and powerful, with Lee's fragile and beautiful voice as the centerpiece. The recordings are an instantly engaging blend of high and low fidelity, mixing lush studio productions, featuring keys, guitar, violin and banjo, with clattering homemade percussion and found sounds. While the album is certainly Lee's brainchild, the recordings are very much a collaborative effort featuring contributions by friends and others met along the way.

Love's Crushing Diamond was initially going to be a cassette-only self-release, before some friends offered to start a label and press a limited edition 250 LP run. Then, as the Bandcamp posting of the album received growing recognition, most notably so from Pitchfork who made it the first-ever Bandcamp release to be awarded "Best New Music", Other Music Recording Co. offered to take the reigns for the proper UK / European release this record deserves.
