LA neighbors and sonic composers Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith and Emile Mosseri have introduced a gorgeous collaborative record that fuses their dreamy melodies and warm textures to create a lush, scenic world. We first heard Emile Mosseri’s music through his Oscar-nominated film score for Minari a few years ago and was deeply moved by how nostalgic and visceral it was. Smith was enamored by his work in The Last Black Man In San Francisco and reached out. Through a mutual appreciation of each others creative processes, the two artists harmoniously converged to create an expansive and delicate body of work. The tracks fluidly transition into one another with bubbling chirps, ambient echos seamlessly woven together with earthly synthesized sounds. Our favorite is the title track, which opens with a soft and ethereal vocal verse and fragmented melody that nods a bit to the world of Daniel Lentz’s ‘Miss Umbrarum’. Highly recommend if you’re looking for something bright, poetic & contemplative to melt into.
