We heard the gorgeous A-side from Moses Sumney’s “Seeds” b/w “Pleas” 7″ back on Cinco De Mayo, and today, almost four months later, the B-side has arrived. “Pleas” is a similarly spectacular sample of Sumney’s soulful, whispery folk-rock craftsmanship. The song is little more than gentle vocal harmonies guiding the LA singer-songwriter’s voice across glistening guitar arpeggios. That’s all it needs to be because this guy has a gift. Listen below.
The “Seeds” b/w “Pleas” 7″ is out 10/30 on Terrible Records. Pre-order it here. Sumney plays the Hollywood Bowl this Sunday, 8/30 with Erykah Badu and St. Vincent.
