[ In the projects The Desert and Young, the mosaic orchestrates a movement of an individual person through different spaces or rooms. The resulting art is akin to the work of artists such as Andrew Bird, Ben Howard, Sufjan Stevens, Nick Drake, David Crosby, and Henry Jamison. Like these songsmiths, james of mosaics focuses on creating diverse instrumental and ambient textures beneath a rich literary narrative. As Cooper Casale, another Georgia writer, comments, Young is "a beautifully produced album of spiritual investigation and quiet triumph. Reminds [him] of The Antlers quite a bit. The accompaniments are ghostly, yet resolute and confident. The multi-instrumentalist has never felt more comfortable in his abilities and in the musicians around him." ] If you're looking for impressionistic indie folk to shake your soul awake, james of mosaics invites you to enter the journey.
