Mutual Benefit Unveils Come To Pass Video

Jordan Lee, aka Mutual Benefit, has unveiled a video for Come To Pass.

The track is from Lee's recent folk-pop LP, 'Thunder Follows The Light', the follow up to 2016's 'Skip A Sinking Stone', which hit shelves in September. Discussing the song, he said:

"Come to Pass is a refutation of the idea that there was ever a golden age to return back to. Both personally and politically I’m afraid of this sort of constructed nostalgia that keeps us looking backwards instead of a having a powerful enough imagination to see the hard truths of the present but work towards a better future."

The multi-instrumentalist and producer enlisted director Gabriel Gomez for the visual, who added:

"I wanted to honour both the song’s sonic aesthetics and message. When Jordan and I spoke about the lyrics and the overall narrative, we discussed the notion of relying on the past for answers about the future. History obviously holds wisdom, but it can also act as a tethering for progress. Ultimately, sometimes it’s just as important to let go. I wanted to take those ideas and turn them into a simple, visually-satisfying story featuring a person actively trying to free themselves of the past. And a very wise dog. There’s a lot of really dark shit on our screens these days and I just wanted to make something somewhat whimsical, but with a soulful narrative that everyone can relate to."

Lee will support the record with a UK and Ireland tour starting in late October. Prior to dates in North America, he will call in Belfast, Cork, Dublin, Glasgow, Newcastle, Bristol, London, Manchester, Birmingham, Aberfeldy, Leeds and Bristol.

It’s one year since we said we’d see Tom Petty somewhere along the road, and it’s still a bitter one to swallow. We’ve had time to accept that there’s a full stop to his story, and to understand our relationship with his music in a new context, but that doesn’t mean we have to like it.

We Were Promised Jetpacks - The More I Sleep The Less I Dream (Album Review)
Thu 27 Sep 2018
Album four from Edinburgh's We Were Promised Jetpacks is, in their own words, about going back to basics. Since 2014’s ‘Unravelling’ they’ve changed management and label, both potential pitfalls, while recording was undertaken in the US with producer Jonathan Low. Running alongside these changes on ‘The More I Sleep The Less I Dream’ is the switch back to their original four man configuration and something approximating the style of their early releases.

Mon 01 Oct 2018
Remix albums don’t always work. The best examples refresh and reveal elements of the original songs, giving them new life and often broadening their appeal. When they fail, it is often because the tracks lack the integrity and consistency of the source material.
