    This is one dense and tight set, barely over half-an-hour in length, and it's definitely in contention for Muldrow's most focused, funkiest, and (somewhat ironically) personal release to date.

    Seeds is another interesting record to add to Muldrow's pile.

    It's one of her most captivating and immediate front-to-back statements of purpose as a singer.

    Instead of trying to pinpoint source material or the exact way it came together, kick back and revel in all the joy it pumps out.

    Seeds is quaint in its psychedelia, but it's not a hallucinogenic cocktail like Shades of Blue.

    The rollicking and densely layered samples send Muldrow--whose vocal style draws from jazz, soul and gospel--in an unabashedly funky direction, resulting in some of her most emotionally satisfying vocal arrangements and full-throttle rock 'n' roll dramatics to date.

    Seeds strikes the perfect balance, as Madlib's thickly layered funk and soul samples and cabinet rocking beats pair with Muldrow's gloriously off-kilter vocals and free-form song structures to make this her most satisfying release to date.

    Ms. Muldrow has been making records for six years, and Seeds (SomeOthaShip Connect), the newest, produced by Madlib, is the strongest yet.

    Although she is a great poet and lyricist, a little restraint would help in these situations. Seeds is still a great record nonetheless, and shows Muldrow hasn't yet lost focus since Umsindo.

    While her voice may be a point of contention for newcomers and the album's content risks going over heads in its catering to the progressive sect, openminded listeners will find fortune, self-esteem, and inspiration from her constantly growing womanhood.

    Freed from production duties, she pours herself into her voice and her lyrics, giving a vocal performance that drips feeling and firmly establishes her as a singer to be reckoned with.

It's an album that you can just kick back, relax, and listen. She has a unique voice and style. I love that artists like Georgia Anne Muldrow and Madlib are not pressured to be like other artists who is commercially successful. The album was produced by Madlib, which he is one of my favorite producers of all time. Madlib, when will you and Doom release Madvilliany 2? Full Review »
