“[This is] my favorite record on the album,” says Nissim, “I wanted to bring about awareness, spiritual awareness. This awareness has an impact on …

Rather than go back and attempt to re-record the songs that were lost, Squadda B, MondreM.A.N., and Tynethys set out, ambitiously, to record a completely new album and …

Nissim’s Orthodox faith continually informs his work, but perhaps never so explicitly as in this new track, where he draws on the parallels of two seemingly disparate peoples’ struggles, ultimately affirming the common humanity underlying both.

The result is a thoughtful tableau-prodding but shy, guarded but still willing to expose Nylo’s tempestuous soul. The track illustrates her uncanny ability to create an clear vibe …
