Last year Montreal artist and founder of Banko Gotiti Records—the imprint responsible for releases by artists including Tc All-Stars and synth-pop auteur Scott HardwarePat Jordache (aka Patrick Gregoire) released Steps, his breezy, psych-pop sophomore album inspired by Brian Eno, plastic soul, and "Vogue" producer Shep Pettibone.

For his latest single "Moses 147," the multi-instrumentalist looked to the "back alleys of Addis Ababa" for inspiration, pulling elements of Ethiopian jazz and 70s boogie together for a woozy saxophone-heavy jam that clocks in at just over ten minutes.
