1. On God

In episode one, SON. founder Justen LeRoy weaves together voice messages and poetic reflections that dwell in the often nebulous, unseeable space of faith. And while faith is often oriented to the future, the opening words of gratitude from Tyler Mitchell conjure faith as a surrender to the here and now. Contributions from L.A. natives and artists Kayla Acosta, Ali Jachin and DG Santana invoke faith as a feeling that simultaneously demands, threatens, and promises. Artist Shikeith recalls the familial foundations to his spirituality that shape his artistic practice and search for the light through darkness. All these missives are held through an ecstatic soundscape scored by Slauson Malone and Leroy.
