about

"Odyssey into the unknown. Voyage through the cosmos. Trek into the jungles’ depths. The lessening of spaces between strangers. Digging deeper, still. Understory scores these realms, delicately and colorfully. With noise, with melody, with crash and with care, tales are spun with sound both dangerous and tender, frantic and sweet. Reaching from the depths of the gut to sun-peeking canopy, crunching of leaves to sight set planetary. You can hear the toiling away, the clenching, the stretches, the strain. Maryland-native Aziza has crafted a journey to the stars and back- one you could take too, without even leaving your bedroom. His voice subtly changes throughout, reflecting a treacly and thorny coming-of-age. This record will strap you in for a ride, mouth agape, pointing out golden sap sucked out of vinyl bins, splayed across the night sky like unknown constellations. Jazz, folk, ambient, soul, tropicalia, it’s all here. That Cosmic American music, though not quite what Parsons was talking about. Something else, something more. Love and loss, smothering, crushing. Chirps, howls and grunts of the wild. Pings, clacks and whirrs of machines. Explorations of the human heart, ever beating. Set some time aside for Understory. And as Aziza decrees: 'headphones, please.'" - Joe Gutierrez
