Q&A: Moses Sumney Delves Into Solitude His Own Way On Aromanticism

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 18:50:44 +0000

Nothing about Moses Sumney is ordinary. When you set out to solve for x in the equation of two strict Ghanaian parents who also happen to both be pastors, the solution is usually not one acclaimed singer-songwriter operating at an intersection of genres. Especially one that has a B.A. in Creative Writing, a circle of…

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 17:01:38 +0000

There are weeks when the "Album Of The Week" idea seems entirely ridiculous and insufficient, when there are so many great records flooding in that it seems sad and unfair to highlight just one.

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 14:24:48 +0000

Artfully dreamy singer-songwriter Kacey Johansing is a Michigan native, but she resides in a California small town so reclusive that it's only accessible by unmarked roads.

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 13:25:11 +0000

There may be better places to see Zola Jesus than a desiccated upstate New York factory full of intense-looking art-goths, but there probably are not many. The bottom of the Mariana Trench, maybe?

According to Billboard, Logic’s "1-800-273-8255," which features Khalid and Alessia Cara, is now the No. 3 song in the country.
