More Info:

Recorded in 2014, Mid-City Island is the first everproject to be released from Moses Sumney. Mosesrecorded the entire EP from his apartment inMid-City, Los Angeles straight to cassette on afour-track recorder that TV on the Radio's Dave Siteklent him.To mark the 10 year anniversary of Mid-City Island,Moses kept good on a promise he made to himself allthose years ago, broke and starting out - that hewould press it to vinyl in a decade.Reflecting back on that period, Moses says"Mid-City, Los Angeles was more of a concept than aplace. Seemingly nobody had ever heard of it, andyet it was the geographic center of the city. Livingthere felt analogous to my disposition as a "rising"Angeleno - highly visible and invisible at the sametime. I sat on my bedroom floor and wrote "Plastic."Throughout his 10-year career, Moses Sumney hasconsistently evaded definition as an act of duty:technicolor self-directed videos and monochromeclothes; Art Rock and Black Classical; blowing intoFashion Weeks from a small town in North Carolina;seemingly infinite collaborators, but one staggeringvoice. Consistent across the worlds of music,fashion, and film is his assertion that the undefinablestill exists and dwelling in it is an act of resistance.
