When “Not For Nothing”, the first single for Jordan Lee’s latest album as Mutual Benefit, was released this past winter, it appeared as a jarring shift in style. Anchored by acoustic guitar and piano, the song felt like Bright Eyes circa I’m Wide Awake, It’s Morning, rather than the more complex arrangements fans have grown accustomed to. It showed both a willingness to experiment and a refusal to be boxed in, as well as a troubling sign that the new album might have lost sight of what made Mutual Benefit so captivating. Thankfully, that’s not the case, as Skip A Sinking Stone, Lee’s most ambitious project yet, retains many of those elements, warm synths and lush orchestration containing flute, oboe, violin, and cello contributing to the serene dream pop Lee captures throughout the record.
