$42.00
Condition: Brand New
Ships from: Melbourne

Description

Written in Montreal, Los Angeles, Asheville, To panga, Laguna, Big Bear, on the coast of Nicaragua and on a sleepy ship crossing the Pacific Ocean. The creation of "Aromanticism" was a 3-year adventure into the parts of the self that society encourages us to silence for the sake of our mental health

The album title was chosen before any of his songs were written. The definition of "romantic" not yet found in the dictionary: someone who does not really feel romantic attraction. "Aromanticism" offers features and production contributions by Matt Otto (Majical Cloudz), Thundercat, Joshua Willing Halpern, Paris Strother (KING), Miguel AtwoodFerguson, Rob Moose, Ian Chang (Son Lux), Tosin Abasi (Animals as Leaders), Nicole Miglis (Hundred Waters), Ludwig Görannson, Cam Obi, and others

All lyrics and vocal arrangements were written by me. A genre division is avoided, while the technique of choir-inspired vocal layering is used to explore the diversity contained within a single person. (Moses Sumney, June 2017)

Reviews

"Despite his angelic voice, Sumney is sometimes closer to Thom Yorke than to Soul. (...) With an ambient sound framework, at the centre of which is Sumney's voice, he combines lo-fi loops, voice distortion and various vocal techniques with noisy elements to form a symbiotic whole. This reveals an intimacy that inevitably turns listeners into voyeurs." (SPEX)

"The debut was eagerly awaited. Now it's a high mass of the tearful soul folk." ('Album of the week' musikexpress, 21.09.2017)
