Some adorably cutesy (yes, it's cutesy) indie folk that recalls Grizzly Bear, Bon Iver, Sigur Ros/Jonsi (occasionally) and most obviously Foreign Fields.

It goes down easy, like a spoonful of sugar stirred in water.

A perfect little capsule of beauty, emotion and simplicity. Always coming back to this album; it's just very easy to listen to and pleasant.

“Love’s Crushing Diamond” is an unusually relaxing album, using a fairly standard psychedelic folk palette to lull its listeners into a bit of a daze, only to slowly pique their attention once more with swells of subtle beauty. Though this is a bit of a narrow work, that shouldn’t be held against it — Mutual Benefit works for very specific moods, and it fits those moods quite well.
