practice is Jason Calhoun's fourth release on Lily Tapes & Discs, and his second of 2019 (following better to give, released this past April by Gertrude Tapes), but the first under his own name. And while there may not be an immediately noticeable change in style or texture from Jason's recent work as naps, there is a deeply felt shift in energy, one that takes root and reveals itself slowly. It is an assured step forward from behind the curtain, an open invitation. practice is as much an album to listen to as a room to inhabit - the details are all right in front of you, but you take them in differently as the world turns, as the light on the wall shifts and fades. Are we speeding up or slowing down? Doesn't matter, they're the same thing.
