Moses Sumney released a brand new three-song EP, Black in Deep Red, 2014, in August via Jagjaguwar. Its main single, "Rank & File" (which was one of our Songs of the Week), now has a live video. But it's not a typical live video shot at one of his shows, instead it was co-produced by La Blogothèque and filmed in Paris in a dark room while the camera swirls around Sumney. Watch it below, followed by his upcoming tour dates.

Sumney released his debut full-length album, Aromanticism, in September 2017 via Jagjaguwar. It was our #1 Debut Album of 2017 and one of our overall Top 100 Albums of 2017.

Sumney had this to say about the Black in Deep Red, 2014 EP in a previous press release: "Black in Deep Red, 2014 was ignited by the first and last time I attended a protest. It was in the fall of 2014, after a grand jury decided not to charge the offending officer in the Mike Brown murder, delivering the verdict just in time for them to get home for Thanksgiving. I felt like a camouflaged outsider at the protest, like an anthropologist performing a study amongst his own kind. I took to the mountains soon after that and wrote these songs, wondering if power was a transferable device that could change hands through the vocalizing of unrest. The EP's title is inspired by a 1957 Mark Rothko painting by the same name."
