I can’t remember how I first came across Turn On The Sunlight, but it immediately grabbed me. Multi-instrumentalist Jesse Peterson’s project continually leaves me stranded high above the clouds, basking in his music’s bright, open spaces. Turn On The Sunlight’s newest is Peterson’s most ambitious: a double LP on Moon Glyph entitled You Belong, out this Friday, October 14. It’s special. Pick up a copy HERE.
In the meantime, Peterson put together this ‘Motherhood’ mix that captures a similar spirit as You Belong and has been getting me through a rough week. Dive in head first.
