Mutual Benefit – The Cowboy’s Prayer
This EP gets me. Well, I’m not even sure I can call this an EP but I do know that Cowboy’s Prayer is quite simply one of the best bits of music I’ve heard all year. Mutual Benefit is the creative brainchild of Jordan Lee, manager of Kassette Klub music label. There is not a lot out there on Mutual Benefit but you need only listen to the tracks.
The Cowboy’s Prayer is a meld of simple reverbs and experimental, folksy percussion. Now, normally that combo would sound crazy but Lee brings it all together with his stripped down and personal vocal delivery. Auburn Epitaphs and its transition into Passenger reminds me of why I am passionate about music. It’s beautiful. You know you’re listening to some good stuff when you have to stop and pay attention to what’s coming through your speakers. Chilling.
The Cowboy’s Prayer is available for purchase starting December 1.
