Meno Mosso ∗ mm-04 ∗ 03/04/2016
"Multi-instrumentalist Joe Adamik (Califone, Iron & Wine), who has an album of his own called Super Low due out soon on Busch’s Meno Mosso label. It’s a similarly eclectic affair, sounding at times like a mashup of the Young Marble Giants and the Band."
— Bill Meyer

Featuring players such as Emmett Kelly (Bonnie Prince Billy), Joseph Adamik (Iron and Wine, Califone) and string arrangements by Arnulf Lindner (Heather Nova, Ed Harcourt), Chamma—which translates to “loving lady” in Tibetan--is a sinuous blend of electronica, found sound, folk and chamber pop.
