  • Photay, AKA Evan Shornstein, is releasing a new record, Waking Hours, on Mexican Summer. Arriving June 12th, the ten-track LP features appearances from Michael Lovett (Metronomy), Carlos Niño and Gambian kora player Salieu Suso, plus vocals from Felicia Douglass and Kristin Slipp. In addition to electronic instrumentation, the album includes live guitar, acoustic piano and live drumming from Shornstein. He says, "This record navigates the times we live in. A response to cultural pressures and social norms. In these controversial times, I am asking questions and creating lyrical reminders. The lyrics are a daily meditation. Sentiments to revisit over and over again as our lives ebb and flow. This album is about time, stillness and peace within." Just last week, the New York-based artist released On Hold, a charity album benefiting Food Bank for New York City. Listen to "Warmth In The Coldest Acre."
