Amoeba Review

12/02/2013

Mutual Benefit’s latest release is a small, glittering gem of an album, full of restless experimental folk that rumbles with creativity even as it soothes with majestic sounds. Warm noise, chimes and droning acoustic guitars open “Strong River” like a sunrise wake-up call. Fittingly, “Golden Wake” follows, softly and briskly on a drum-machine beat that sizzles in the background while the band harmonizes and offers strings and synth-flute solos. “Advanced Falconry” offers the soundtrack to stunning natural vistas with its grandiose presentation and stunning, skyward melodies. “That Light That’s Blinding” settles the album’s middle nicely, with lovely boy/girl harmonies, and the album closes on a set of more atmospheric numbers that continue the album’s seven-song spell. It altogether feels like a beautiful summer day, well-spent.
