A few months back the OKP fam tipped us off to the mind blowing creations of Moses Sumney. Raised between L.A. and Ghana, Moses is a self-taught singer/songwriter whose DIY style has been earning mad love from the likes of ?uestlove and KING. Armed with loops, heavenly pipes, and his own two hands, Moses is a one-man soul-folk wonderband. He's been making a big splash for his soul-churning live performances out in L.A. and has had the rest of the world hungry since OKP last premiered the insanely amazing live musical birth of "Replaceable." Well, thanks to Art Don’t Sleep we now have a new clip to remind us why we're so smitten. Recorded live in July from L.A.'s Mayan Theatre, this latest video captures Moses yet again creating pure magic totally from scratch. Watch "Everlasting Sigh" below.
