A film about Northwest hip-hop from

Sweet To Me

The Seattle Times describes Sweet To Me, the third release from JusMoni, as “cerebral headphone escape, easier than hopping in a sensory deprivation tank… an aural candlelight massage after a joint and a glass of red.” ETC Tacoma, who hosted this album’s release event, say that seeing JusMoni perform is like “sprinkling blessings over listeners with every note.” KEXP adds to the praise, expressing that “her music constantly explores the boundaries of R&B and soul music, touching upon motherhood, spiritual transformation, the blood’s memory, and family tradition.”

Here’s another take:

In their annual year-end critics’ poll, The Seattle Times ranked Sweet To Me as one of the very best Seattle albums of 2018, saying:

Electro-soul singer Moni Tep steps out with this dreamy 10-song set that plays like an enveloping love meditation. Hypnotic, slow-rolling beats provide the perfect canvas for the Black Constellation affiliate’s swirling melodies that seemingly hang in midair. As soothing as a candlelight massage, Tep enchantingly layers her reverbed vocals on “Linked In” — an album highlight about the forces of attraction — before stacking them even higher on the sultry “Watching Planes.”
