Listen to Joshua Moshier’s ‘Semipermanence’ (and watch Fred Armisen listen to it)

Emmy-nominated composer Joshua Moshier (Baskets, Documentary Now!) just released his new album, Semipermanence, which features contributions from Jeff Parker, Macie Stewart, Caroline Davis, Akenya, and more.

“I was inspired in part by albums like Quincy Jones’s The Dude and Paul Simon’s Graceland, where disparate styles and performers piece together like a puzzle into something unified and new,” Joshua says of the album. “I loved the process of turning my scoring approach into collaborations with many of my favorite artists, and hope that listeners feel welcomed into the varied musical worlds that made this album possible.”

You can listen to Semipermanence below in an unusual form — an album-length video of Fred Armisen listening to the album, drinking tea, reading the liner notes and, midway through, flipping the record over. Watch that below.
