From The Cowboy's Prayer EP, out now on Other Music Recording Co.
Other Music re-releases Mutual Benefit’s 2011 EP, The Cowboy’s Prayer, in conjunction with a massive fall tour in North America. Previously available only as a Bandcamp download, The Cowboy’s Prayer was the real introduction of the lush orchestral folk sound that many first heard on Mutual Benefit’s breakthrough Love’s Crushing Diamond LP. The Cowboy’s Prayer EP has been remastered and is available in physical formats for the first time, with all new artwork, as a gorgeous one-sided etched 12” and CD, as well as download.
Earlier this month, Mutual Benefit reissued 2013?s Cowboy’s Prayer EP, the last record Jordan Lee made before the breakthrough Love’s Crushing Diamond. Cowboy’s Prayer’s watery opener “Auburn Epitaphs” has now been paired with a video directed by David Dean Burkhart, and the clip goes well with the song’s warm, faded tone. It stitches together old footage, most strikingly of floats in a parade long past. It’s a simple, beautiful bit of found footage that you should watch above. -- Stereogum
