EDITORS’ NOTES

"Aromanticism is a concept album about lovelessness as a sonic dreamscape," Moses Sumney stated in a blog post. "It seeks to interrogate the idea that romance is normative and necessary." It’s also a debut album that establishes its author as a very special voice. The exquisite “Quarrel”—all foreboding bass, levitating harp, and trippy soul—is spine-chilling, “Make Out in My Car” glides by suggestively with a chemtrail of flutes, and on the acoustic “Indulge Me,” Sumney is sincere, vulnerable, and quietly devastating.

Exquisite.

Amazing job. The emotion is palpable and delicious throughout the Lp. Best songs are Plastic, Quarrel, Make Out in My Car, and Doomed, but the whole thing is extraordinary. One of the best releases of this year.
