Sampling a Chinese song by the name of “Fishing Village Girl” released long ago Jordan and Andrew have crafted a song that has given me chills down my spine and into my chilly toes. Like a long walk thru a forest along the train tracks watching the fallen leaves swirl around your hiking buddy.
I’m so pleased I can finally share this, I’ve been like a kid in grammar school that knows a big secret but can’t tell anyone. Jordan was kind enough to give me a sneak peak last week of his new track for a split cassette he’s doing with Philip Seymour Hoffman [not the actor] where their combining their respected EPs. You can pick up two singles off this 32-minute cassette from Kassette Klub’s bandcamp right now. [photo]
Mutual Benefit’s search for meaning in memorialisation illustrates the dilemma of a writer in the midst of creative process; Can words ever do justice to a memory? How do you create something that will stay relevant forever? An appropriately Autumnal study of ephemerality, a rumination on songwriting cleverly couched inside a song. Nothing short of sublime.
