In a summer rife with quality releases, “Evoking Spirits” stands with a handful as one of the most satisfying. The ethereal quality of the synthetic sounds is both appropriately and ironically organic. The drums punch through the mix while Tay Sean’s vocals waft a bit higher. His verse is written with striking economy; it sounds labored over, edited. These, as well as the cosmic content and the tribal-chant outro, reminiscent of Shabazz Palaces, should be regarded as an exciting and important step in the development of one of the region’s most intriguing artists.
