Stream Taylor McFerrin's 'Early Riser' LP Ahead Of Upcoming 06/03 Release
Taylor McFerrin serves up a full stream of his highly-anticipated forthcoming Early Riser LP ahead of the project’s June 3rd release via Brainfeeder Records. The DJ, producer and composer presents the stream via NPR‘s First Listen for those eager to get a taste of the final product following the arrival of his expertly crafted singles featuring Thundercat, Robert Glasper and Nai Palm of Hiatus Kaiyote, which effectively set fans on fire. The project, which also features appearances from RYAT, César Camargo Mariano and his father Bobby McFerrin, is the first full release from Taylor McFerrin since his 2008 Broken Vibes EP. NPR’s Kiana Fitzgerald offers a spot-on description of the quirky beauty and nuanced charm McFerrin has packed into the impending release:
The beauty of Early Riser is its carefully orchestrated ebb and flow: alternating tracks where McFerrin goes it alone versus those that teem with assistance; of organic and inorganic sounds; of unpredictable frolicks between ethereal singing and stream-of-consciousness scatting; and of dark-tinged corners of production that burst into shimmering light when you least expect it.
