Another one where if you asked me how I stumbled on this, I couldn’t tell you (though it seems likely to involve research for my September tape column), but I can safely say I’m becoming obsessed. Sudan Moon’s “Mr. Blue” gets into some spastic territory. Productions laced in sunkissed glitter and gold that, at times, remind me of Maxmillion Dunbar if he was from outer space or Cosmic Sound dosed with the phonk. Her voice is the big star, though, and it’s like a beam of pure light jettisoned in to wrap “Mr. Blue” beneth a veil of silver lace. I’m on that Sudan Moon cosmic train y’all.
Sudan Moon’s killer GOLDENCITY is out now on cassette and digital formats from Paxico.
