Detroit techno legend Moodymann doesn't exactly make music for sitting at your computer and...writing about Moodymann, but doing that also works a lot better than you might imagine. There's an imperfect, homemade quality to the eight tracks that make up Picture This, but they're done so well that that is only a positive thing. So far, we've listened to this while sitting in a chair, while walking to get a sandwich, and while eating that sandwich. There's a fair amount of flute too, which, in the right context is never a bad thing. The whole thing is a hypnotic, nuanced and beautifully textured listen. Get it now for a whole zero dollars from Scion A/V.
