Mutual Benefit announce January 2014 tour, but, by then the stores won't even be selling egg nog, so who cares?

Everything great ends. The Roman Empire? Gone. Stanley Kubrick? Deader than dead. KISS? Still around, but listen here: they ain’t nothing without the Space Ace. Currently, though, we are living in a golden age. Grocery stores are selling egg nog. If you have two American dollar bills, you can be enjoying egg nog this very evening. By January, that kind of deal will be nothing but a fond memory. By January, egg nog will be gone and love will be dead. At least folk-pop outfit Mutual Benefit will be going on tour that month. For some, that will ease the blow. For others, nothing will.

Earlier this season, the season of nog, Mutual Benefit put out their debut album Love’s Crushing Diamond through Soft Eyes. Now, that album has been re-released by Other Music this week — prime nog time. Once the nog is gone (and along with it, the country’s soul), that same album will get a vinyl release from Other Music. Specifically, the vinyl will come out on January 7, but by then, will anyone even feel feelings? Write your congress person. Make nog yearlong.
