Mutual Benefit, Nicole Yun, and Lamplight

Mutual Benefit is the chamber folk project of Brooklyn songwriter Jordan Lee. For over a decade, he has crafted pop experiments that are uniquely comforting but willing to stare down life’s more difficult existential quandaries. His lush songwriting is often pieced together over several years, inspired by the hellos and goodbyes and blurred landscapes of life in flux. As a writer for The New Yorker heard it, “Bells and flutes and strings blend with basic rock instruments; vocal arrangements pulse and flow, and the result shimmies beyond the fence of the familiar.”

Nicole Yun is the singer, guitarist, and songwriter for dream pop trio Eternal Summers. Nicole’s sophomore album, MATTER, is out digitally and her vinyl campaign is up now on Bandcamp!

Put on Lamplight, the self-titled debut from singer-songwriter Ian Hatcher-Williams, and you’ll notice a few things. A brushed and skittering 6/8 rhythm. Softly distorted guitar. The languid drawl of a pedal steel as it flirts with demure strings. It’s a room you recognize but can’t quite place. The furnishings are comfortable. 2024 brings the debut of newcomer, Appalachian country-mouse-gone-city-and-back-again, Ian Hatcher-Williams, AKA Lamplight. After a warp-speed five years in New York City trying on the vestments of cumbersome enterprise and often sacrificing personal life, health and identity along the way, Ian returned home to the rolling mountain peaks of southwestern Virginia to undress, stretch out, reconsider. The result is the cathartic return to self, a nine-song earth-caked internal excavation, releasing Spring 2024 on Western Vinyl.
