Hieroglyphic Being ‎– The Red Notes

Hieroglyphic Being ‎– The Red Notes

$31.00

Totally rich and absorbing, Jamal Moss's new venture is an illuminating and enlivening journey.

Nine movements make rich and textural use of an extensive sweep of instruments, giving the entirety a multiplicity of softs and hards, of timbral depth and melodic possibility.  From the immediately angular-come-alleviating “Youth Brainwashing and the Extremist Cults,” where jagged synth and organ temper each other; to the murmuring “Awake and Energize;” and the IDM-touched title track, with its captivating nowhere melodies, the never-knowing when the kick is going to kick in; we find ourselves once again boggled by Moss’ ability to give such spiritual, emotional, physical, technological, philosophical, political roundedness (or edginess?) in these beautiful, hybrid styles.

Released on Soul Jazz records.
