Stadiums & Shrines

What a combination—Mutual Benefit and Philip Seymour Hoffman—two EPs, one 32 minute tape; cue the burst, with philosophical sparks raining. The excerpts alone are too luminous to circle just once, to take in from any one angle: Jordan sings of Midwestern road trips, Roy Roger’s Epitaph, and the great unknown—ideas as big as the open plains. And then there’s Noah, at infinite howl, sending aural postcards to the loving universe, narrating his own critical consciousness, clarity and discovery, with ears unblocked.
