Hear This Song Today: Advanced Falconry by Mutual Benefit

“oh to stare into the void / and see a friendly face / and find meaning in a word / in a moment of rare grace”

The lyrics above are unlikely to ever win a prize for profundity (isn’t that an ugly word, and isn’t a profundity prize an excellent idea for an accolade?), but even I have managed to descend from my tennis umpire chair of soaring snobbery and appreciate that even a simple, somewhat cliched sentiment can be enjoyed. After all, cliches become so for a reason, right? Mutual Benefit lather some quieter Dodos vocals over a High Highs track and imbue it with the spirit of what I imagine went through the mind of a 16 year-old Sufjan. Advanced Falconry’s the track, but Love’s Crushed Diamond is the album, recently released for your listening benefit. Actually, for some mutual benefit, as the musicians will profit financially. Hello capitalism.

    Bro, we haven’t listened to the song, but Cam and I are really bored in a lecture, so we thought we’d leave you a note here just saying hi.
