Multi-instrumentalist Jordan Lee has been creating his critically-acclaimed brand of warm, psychedelic-flavored folk music as Mutual Benefit since 2009. The band dips away from their east coast tour with Deer Tick to play an intimate set at The Sentient Bean, presented by Savannah/Virginia label Furious Hooves, on Sunday.
Mutual Benefit’s last release, 2013’s Love’s Crushing Diamond, an exquisitely tender and lovely record, was universally adored by critics for its experimental folk interpretations and Sufjan Stevens/Sparklehorse/Microphones-style compositions.
Native Savannahian Jamison Murphy—who has clocked many hours on The Sentient Bean stage as a solo folk singer-songwriter—brings his new band, Pop Weirdos, to town for the occasion. A psych-pop collaboration with songwriter Bennett Kane, Pop Weirdos blends Beach Boys-style harmonies, guitar, organ, drums, violin, cello, and bass in a manner that makes the sound quite worthy of its namesake.
Chad Chilton of Triathalon performs a solo set of dream-pop as Chilton.
Sunday, March 6, 8 p.m., $5, all-ages
