Jordan Lee’s art pop collective Mutual Benefit celebrated the vinyl re-release of their 2013 debut LP, Love’s Crushing Diamond, via Other Music this week (1/7), and part of that celebration included performing one of its tracks, “Advanced Falconry,” plus two songs from their 2010 Spider Heaven EP, for the seventh installemnt of our BV Studio Sessions recorded at Butler Recording in Bushwick. Big thanks to Jessica Amaya, Albert Amaya and Chris La Putt for making this look (and sound) great. You can check out the video at the bottom of this post.
