This week’s download comes from The Seshen and their new album “Cyan.” You have seven days to download their song “Take It All Away.”
From the press release:
The Seshen is a San Francisco Bay Area six-piece band whose songs exist between the lines: in the space between waking and dreaming, ego and collective consciousness, at that blurred horizon where earth meets sea meets sky.
Anchored by St. Juste’s sly, silvery vocals (which draw frequent comparisons to Erykah Badu) and cerebral yet danceable rhythms from producer-bassist Akiyoshi Ehara, their music pulls from a deep well of electronic influences, R&B, and indie rock. Drummer Chris Thalmann, keyboard/synth player Mahesh Rao, percussionist Mirza Kopelman and sequencer Kumar Butler make the music three-dimensional, blending live and digital instrumentation for a mercurial, transportive sound.
Since 2012, the Seshen’s live show has earned critical acclaim and a dedicated fanbase on multiple continents, as they’ve shared stages with the likes of Hiatus Kaiyote, tUnE-yArDs, Petite Noir, and Thundercat.
CYAN is the band’s most vulnerable, compelling work to date. Over a spacious, at times tumultuous sonic landscape, Juste sings of a reckoning: a hero’s journey through confusion and self-doubt, depression, and ultimately forging a way out toward the light. CYAN is a story about saving yourself. There’s death, rebirth. And a chance to dive deep in search of a new life—one stripped of pretense or protective armor, for better or for worse.
