Jam of the Week: Moses Sumney – Lonely World

Moses Sumney, press photo 1 (853x480)Los Angeles soulster, Moses Sumney, has an astonishing voice that can freeze you in place.

The singer, songwriter and producer has a handful of physical releases to his name on B3SCI and Terrible Records (Solange, Blood Orange), and has covered Little Dragon in the past.

Now he’s teamed up with Thundercat for the soul-drenched ‘Lonely World’. This track swirls and swells from a warm, Nina Simone pick-me-up, to an inverse Emilíana Torrini bass rhythm, to gospel gold. It’s incredible. The song appears on Sumney’s new EP, Lamentations, which is released today.

Lonely World appears on the Lamentations EP, out now as a self-release by Moses Sumney.
