Rithwik Hari This is so lovely! I hear so much in the vein of Terry Riley, Harold Budd, Brian Eno; lush melodies and beautiful layers, cascading and tumbling and repeating.

Douglas McQueen Modal and repetitive synth excursions that sounds just as good on an early Monday morning as they do on a quiet Saturday evening. A relaxing listening experience that also has great depth and dynamics. You’ll be completely spaced out, only to pop your head up every few minutes and say “this is beautiful.”

Cosmic Chicago modal organ grinder Jimmy Lacy developed the dexterous dialect of SiP some years back while helming a happy hour residency at a Logan Square cocktail lounge that required he vamp rambling three-hour sets nightly. With such a wide window to fill, he free-flowed serpentine mandala keyboard motifs across 15-minute expanses, soaking in every spiral, stasis, and sliding scale. These hypno-motion strategies were rehearsed and refined across stellar radio performances (notably for Planet Catieo, WLPN 105.5FM) and studio sessions, finally culminating in the sidewinder séances of his dazzling debut: Leos Naturals.

Lacy speaks of SiP as a headspace “in sync with my own clock and rhythms,” which is apparent in his uniquely attuned playing, both motorik and meandering, between raga, rave-up, and reverie. Limber lotus position keyboard designs interweave with soft threads of bass clarinet, melodica, kalimba, and percussion, deepening the spectrum and expanding the trip. It’s a music elevated yet earthbound, loose but precise, natural magic for unnatural times.
