Vinyl debut of Elysia Crampton (E + E), inaugurating her Shenandoah series, which breaks from her sample-rich arrangements to explore "Virginian American history and brownness beyond culture, as geology -- as mud, dirt, and mineral." "Moth," written for and featuring the compelling vocal of Money Allah, pays tribute to legendary African-American comedians Stepin Fetchit and Bert Williams against a backdrop of vaporous synths and strings that recalls TCF and Arca. "Lake," Crampton's version of a Bolivian Saya, references John Bunyan's 17th-century Christian allegory The Pilgrim's Progress and incorporates field recordings from a railroad path near Virginia's Shenandoah Mountain. Wraparound artwork. Edition of 300. Mastered and cut by Matt Colton at Alchemy.
