The debut album from Moses Sumney is a soulful, cosmic embrace of aloneness. The concept of aromanticism-the incapacity or unwillingness to reciprocate romantic feelings or love-runs throughout Sumney’s fragile, existential lyrics: Broken, disappointed, and isolated, Sumney is like Melville’s forlorn Bartleby staring somberly out the window into the void-or, perhaps, a 21st-century version of Tina Turner whispering What’s love got to do with it?

Aromanticism is the debut studio album by American singer-songwriter Moses Sumney. It was released on September 22, 2017 by Jagjaguwar. It is a concept album about "lovelessness as a sonic dreamscape" that "seeks to interrogate the idea that romance is normative and necessary. The record was written and produced by Sumney, with assistance from numerous musicians. It features new versions of two previously-released songs, "Plastic" and "Lonely World".

The last record I got from this label, (Bon Iver 22 A Million) was one of the worst pressings Ive heard, but this record sounds wonderful, with little to no surface noise. A very interesting artist my son turned me on to. Radiohead meets Al Green. Reply See 4 replies Notify me 1 Helpful.

Aromanticism is an album that is heartfelt and heartbreaking, and, from the opening chorals to the closing moments of ‘Self Help Tape’, is an album like no other. With Aromanticism, Moses Sumney creates a harmonious world in which he speaks from a position that isn't often recognized. Sumney approaches the complexities of relationships, power structures and an inability to experience romantic love with a quiet, powerful confidence.

It requires multiple listens. In turn, it helps the listener grow, revealing spaces where their own narrative and experiences can intertwine with his-not in a romantic sense, but an educational sense. As a result, Aromanticism has already become one of the most emotionally therapeutic albums of the year.

On Aromanticism Lyrics. In an excerpt from Plato's Symposium, Aristophanes recounts the origins of love. According to his Greek mythology, humans were once four-legged, four-armed, and double-sexed. In response to this construct, Aromanticism is a concept album about lovelessness as a sonic dreamscape. It seeks to interrogate the idea that romance is normative and necessary. This isn't protest music, however, as much as it is process music.

Reviews:
  • Faegal
The VMP pressing is the way to go. Quiet, dynamic--excellent mastering. Love this album and pressing, can't help but turn it up.
  • Sti
Excellent package on this one from VMP. The record is dead quiet in terms of background noise and the level of detail is impressive.
  • Contancia
A pleasant surprise from JAGJAGUAR. The last record I got from this label, (Bon Iver 22 A Million) was one of the worst pressings Ive heard, but this record sounds wonderful, with little to no surface noise. A very interesting artist my son turned me on to. Radiohead meets Al Green.
  • Malarad
I’m like you. Hands off policy when it comes to Jagjaguar (and a lot of US labels) but this surprised me tremendously. Perfect pressing, and it’s a quiet record which needed it. Flawless, and thick solid jacket as well
  • Bragis
I did actually order a copy (knowing that I'd be able to return it) ... and I think I'll keep it. While it's not as pristine as was said here, it's still a notable step-up from previous shit pressings. The noise floor is pleasently low - as is absolutely necessary for such a quite record. But there are a few annoying clicks that shouldn't be there on factory fresh records. Hopefully cleaning it will improve on those issues.
  • Iraraeal
I know what you mean. Would really like this album but have also previously sworn off Jagjaguar pressings. What to do, what to do....
  • Jonariara
wow, jagjaguwar finally got its act together? might I have to reconsider my "never-buy-vinyl-from-jagjaguwar" rule?
  • Kulabandis
my record of the year, such a superb sublime jazzy soul album... i missed the limited edition but the regular vinyl release is perfect in every way
  • Gavirgas
Mine's Japanese CD of this album and it comes with one bonus track ("Latchkey Kid"). Catalogue number JAG308J
  • Agarus
What idiot paid 89 euros for this?!? And from a seller that didn't even have it in hand yet. Wow... should've just waited a few more days haha
  • Adorardana
Hahaha it's still available from VMP...but now it will cost you $16US.
  • Nern
How does it sound?, is it worth the VMP copy?
  • Yla
I'm on my second VMP copy, as they sent a replacement for this first due to package damage, dishing and noise/clicking between the two colors. Second is better, but there is still an obvious noise floor increase on the white portion and still some clicking. Packaging looks great and the bonuses are cool, if you care about stuff like that, but if you are looking the best sound I would just go for the standard black copy. I'll be trading my VMP to my local for the standard issue, as I love this album and it deserves to be heard cleanly. YMMVUPDATE: Traded in for the standard issue and it is a significant improvement. Quieter, clearer and more dynamic, even. I would say the VMP is worth it if you like seeing two different colors spin around. If you like music go with the standard.
  • Lamranilv
It sounds fantastic, that being said I haven't heard any other pressing to compare so hopefully somebody else can chime in.
  • misery
Got this reply from JJ last week and got a download code for mp3s."So sorry about that!We are aware of the issue and want to make sure you have the correct version.We have just received the corrected CDs and are shipping them out to stores as we speak.You should be able to return the CD and get a good copy in the next week or so."
  • Painwind
Anyone elses copy of the cd has like 10 seconds of silence after 3:12 mins on the second track??I had two copies with the same problem.....
  • Gnng
The same here! It seems to be a production error...
  • Aloo
Same problem here, so is JJ replacing copies for people who bought one?
  • Chilele
I've had two copies now exactly the same. I contacted Jagjaguwar and they said they are aware of the issue and they've got a corrected version coming.
  • Wizer
Yep, same problem here. I posted a message about it on Jagjaguwar's Facebook -- I'm hoping they're aware of the issue and planning a repress.
  • SoSok
A terrific debut album, my only complaint is that it should have been longer! Amazing clarity and depth of sound on this pressing and the gatefold is very sturdy. Very pleased with this release.
  • Lynnak
It comes with 16 pages book, it is 8 pages with two sides :) and the album is great, yeah, also the cover is solid and thick, sadly no anti static inner sleeves, but overall a great effort!
  • Hirah
It's 16 pages, same as the Vinyl Me, Please edition.
  • Auridora
Mine has an 8 page book. not sure where 24 pages came from.
  • Clandratha
