Mutual Benefit – “Diamond Day” (Vashti Bunyan Cover)
It’s only been a year since the release of Mutual Benefit’s sophomore album Skip A Sinking Stone, and now the Band To Watch alum is putting out a full cover album of Vashti Bunyan’s 1970 debut Just Another Diamond Day. The project is part of Turntable Kitchen’s Sounds Delicious series, in which artists cover entire albums by their favorite musicians. We’ve already heard Jordan Lee’s take on “Glow Worms” & “Jog Along Bess,” and today he’s sharing his version of the quasi-title track “Diamond Day.” Lee’s rendition is a somber meditation accompanied with sultry violin and melancholic banjo melodies. Listen below.
Just Another Diamond Day is out 6/23 via Turntable Kitchen. Subscribe to the series here.
