Uniting good music with new listeners

A Little Jewel from Last Year Re-issued.

I love this album. Yes, it’s true that since this release Moose has evolved and matured immensely as an artist, and rebranded as Abdullah Salah, moved on from File Under_ Records and has done/continues to do amazing work.

A Novel Approach to a Retrospective

Most artists, setting out to create a retrospective, would choose a track or two from each past album and assemble them into a compilation.

The ambient portions are at once ethereal and ominous, suspending us in temperate clouds […]

With soft percussion, compelling melodies, and uplifting warmth, this music can help you finish your homework and clean your house […]
