Aromanticism is the triumphant debut from Moses Sumney, released on September 22, 2017 through Jagjaguwar. A month prior to the album’s release, Moses took to Tumblr to pen a Prose-Poem Essay unraveling the project. Moses explains that Aromanticism is a concept album about lovelessness as a sonic dreamscape that seeks to interrogate the idea that romance is normative and necessary. This isn’t protest music, however, as much as it is process music.
The debut album from Moses Sumney is a soulful, cosmic embrace of aloneness. The concept of aromanticism-the incapacity or unwillingness to reciprocate romantic feelings or love-runs throughout Sumney’s fragile, existential lyrics: Broken, disappointed, and isolated, Sumney is like Melville’s forlorn Bartleby staring somberly out the window into the void-or, perhaps, a 21st-century version of Tina Turner whispering What’s love got to do with it?
Aromanticism (LP, Album, Club, Bla). referencing Aromanticism, LP, Album, JAG308. A pleasant surprise from JAGJAGUAR. The last record I got from this label, (Bon Iver 22 A Million) was one of the worst pressings Ive heard, but this record sounds wonderful, with little to no surface noise. A very interesting artist my son turned me on to. Radiohead meets Al Green. Reply See 4 replies Notify me 1 Helpful.
With Aromanticism, Moses Sumney creates a harmonious world in which he speaks from a position that isn't often recognized. Sumney approaches the complexities of relationships, power structures and an inability to experience romantic love with a quiet, powerful confidence. The instrumentation here is nice, and Moses Sumney has such a fantastic and giant voice that it can break doors down, but much of this album is just sort of plodding along at a medium pace. It's not that it's god awful, it's just lacking this energy that I know Moses Sumney can provide. It's a good record, don't get me wrong. It oozes sleek, graceful melodies like no-ones business.
The singular talents of Moses Sumney were already apparent in a couple of early EPs and guest spots with Solange and Sufjan Stevens, but his stellar debut album, Aromanticism, still comes as a slow-motion shock. First of all there is his concept of "aromantic," defined by Sumney as someone incapable of experiencing romantic love, coupled with the struggle to fit into a world where love is almost an imposition and its negation an aberration.
Moses Sumney – Aromanticism. The electro-soul singer-songwriter's debut is one of the most therapeutic albums of the year. To be fair, Sumney’s ability to create an album such as this one was to be expected. The Los Angeles t has been stunning audiences for years. His early days of singing in coffee shops in 2014 paved the way for word-of-mouth fanfare, eventually earning him spots singing behind Sufjan Stevens and Solange. Yet, while his blend of electro-soul, bare-bones folk, and groove-driven minimalism never fails to impress live, he seems hard-pressed to settle on recorded versions.
