Felipe Gordon was an Upstairs Asylum artist even before the label existed.

[ 5 Mag Cover Story: Norm Talley & Upstairs Asylum: “This Is What the Underground Is” ]

The Sundowners EP is a Various Artists compilation that leads off with two tracks from Gordon: the cut-up jazz jam “Find Yourself In Others” and the affirmative declaration of that description, “I’m A Jazz Cat.”

Known from his records on NDATL and elsewhere, Stefan Ringer leads the B side with the soulful “You Know,” elevated by sparse chords, heady vibes and the best use of a vocoder (or seriously heavy autotune) this century. The Brian Neal/Avalon Kalin project Deepset closes out with the deep house dubby “U Got Dat.” (TM /)

The Sundowners EP is out now on vinyl-only from Upstairs Asylum; unsurprisingly, there is already a “low-stock alert” at Juno.
