In this week’s program: the first part of Moses Sumney’s diptych græ, Libyan reggae by Ahmed Ben Ali, DJ Diaki Balani mix style and more to hear this week.
græ: part 1
Two years after his acclaimed first full-length album Aromanticism in which he questioned the concept of love, Moses Sumney shares the first part of his double album. Sumney’s new album, græ, is an assertion that the undefinable still exists and dwelling in it is an act of resistance. By breaking up græ into two multifaceted, dynamic pieces, Sumney is quite literally creating a “grey” area in-between space for listeners to absorb and consider the art. According to the artist, græ is “a conceptual patchwork about greyness”.
