Why do we like this?
Moses Sumney looks like a model and makes dreamy music. I could end the write-up there, but Jason isn't one for too much brevity, so I'll expand.
I stumbled onto this Angeleno talent a few years ago after seeing a video where he used his voice and a delay pedal to create a truly entrancing three minute experience. His voice hits a sweet spot; it disarms you.The instrumentation is always just enough, it's like he studied at the musical university of Voodoo.
He's actively eschewed categorization. He's shared the stage with R&B and soul acts. He's toured with rock bands. He tagged today's song, "Pleas," as 'folk' on his SoundCloud. He doesn't overexpose. I'm intrigued.
