Nedelle Torrisi – Don’t Play Dumb

Nedelle Torrisi is one of LA’s most talented crafters of sonic wonder. Her album Advice from Paradise is a lush R&B dreamscape that’s a cloud of luminance. Now this wonder is coming in vinyl form from the good folks at Ethereal Sequence. How they compressed clouds into vinyl form is a mystery but it’s also something you must get your hands on. “Don’t Play Dumb” features Nedelle’s talented friends Julia Holter and Ramona Gonzalez and was produced by the sonic seeker Kenny Gilmore. This new video by Travis Peterson is an example of the joy to be found in mundane moments elevated by music and love.

P.S. You can listen to her live dublab Sprout Session here.
