Moses Sumney Performs Live On ‘Tiny Desk’

MOSES SUMNEY LIVE ON ‘TINY DESK’

Aromanticism is a concept album about lovelessness as a sonic dreamscape. Set for September 22nd release via Jagjaguwar, it seeks to interrogate social constructions around romance. The debut will include the recently released single ‘Doomed’ as well as new versions of standouts ‘Lonely World’ and ‘Plastic’.

Moses Sumney puts a great deal of thought into the heartfelt music he creates. On his debut album, Aromanticism, he was inspired by everything from the works of Plato and Aristophanes’ account of the origin of humanity to the Bible, particularly Genesis and the story of creation. It’s all in an attempt to understand human relationships and the sorts of couplings we tend to be drawn to. But despite the working and reworking it took to put these ideas to song, and to then make his brilliant debut, there’s a spontaneous side that you’ll see in this Tiny Desk Concert.

Cut Worms shares ‘Song Of The Highest Tower’

Debut EP, Alien Sunset, out October 20th via Jagjaguwar

“Clarke’s songs as Cut Worms are filled with homespun charm and vintage patina, and “Like Going Down Sideways,” the lead single for his debut EP for Jagjaguwar, is some of his most pleasant work yet.” – Pitchfork

Cut Worms (a.k.a. Max Clarke) is excited to share “Song of the Highest Tower” via FLOOD Magazine. This is the second single off his first-ever EP, “Alien Sunset,” which is out next Friday, October 20th via Jagjaguwar / Rhythmethod.

“Song of the Highest Tower” was written on the same day that Loud Reed passed away in October of 2013. It was also inspired by the Arthur Rimbaud poem of the same name. Here’s what Clarke has to say about the track:

I came across the Velvet Underground in high school. It was new and unheard of in my little suburb and it changed how I looked at music in a profound way. I wanted to honor that, or if not, pay it back, and at least give some kind of credit. One thing about the self-titled Velvet Underground album that really struck me was that they were fairly simple songs, but each song on that album contained a whole revelation. There wasn’t any bullshit or filler or flash, it just was what it was and it felt important. With the Rimbaud poem, I happened to be flipping through this book of poems at the same time I had the melody to that song and it somehow matched up perfectly. When I was writing “Song of The Highest Tower,” I wasn’t actually thinking about any of this stuff. I just wrote it and recorded it on my 8-track and that was it. But now looking back, I’m able to say that it could be a tribute to Lou Reed of sorts.
