A stunning reflection on life’s ambiguity.

The second half of Moses Sumney‘s ambitious double album græ is here. The 20-track project features contributions from the likes of Thundercat, Matt Otto and Oneohtrix Point Never, clocking in at a total of one hour and five minutes.

Described as a “patchwork about grayness,” the album is a reflection of the ambiguity in Sumney’s life that’s always been present in different forms. Born to Ghanian parents and raised in California, he explores the concept of identity, its product of seclusion and the eventual liberation as the child of immigrants. This obscurity further translates into grae’s sonic backdrop as he offers numbers of genre-defying cuts, ranging from the acoustic “Neither/Nor” to the more upbeat “Cut Me” and the spoken word features on opening track “insula.” Sumney’s unique falsetto, however, is alive and distinct across the album — a presentation of his individuality that refuses to be boxed into conformity.
