Published Jun 24, 2014Los Angeles performer M. Geddes Gengras's highly anticipated new Ishi LP is set to hit shelves today (June 24) via Leaving Records/Stones Throw. Rather than dive head-first into the unknown, however, you can stream the whole thing now.
In a press release, the artist said, "The record is about the schism that exists between the world we live in and those stuck on the margins of it — perpetual outsiders and their quest to understand the torrent of information they are constantly subjected to."
He goes on to explain that the album was inspired by two friends who died recently. "The music was a reaction to these losses and a sort of offering of something peaceful but at the same time respectful of the conflict and dissonance of life, with movement always in the distance."
