“Seeds” by Moses Sumney // Seeds (2015 / Terrible Records)
Moses Sumney is an artist who, if you are unfamiliar with, should have your attention based purely upon the artists that he has shared the stage (Sufjan Stevens, St. Vincent, Erykah Badu, Beck, etc…). Of course, if that doesn’t pique your interest, then it shouldn’t take more than a half minute or so listening to his haunting, acoustic ballad, “Seeds”, to make you a fan. The track was produced by Chris Taylor of Grizzly Bear, and that subtle touch plays through beautifully as the song arcs and sways and hovers just out of reach like some ghostly memory that you desperately want to hold onto. Sumney is surely an artist to watch and without a doubt, someone that you’ll likely be hearing more from whether you’re looking or not. The guy is the real deal.
