Moody Monday: Maxwell "Drowndeep: Hula"

Moody R&B at its finest… Maxwell’s more low-key sophomore album ‘Embrya’ may not reach the breakthrough heights of his star-making 1996 debut album ‘Maxwell’s Urban Hang Suite,’ but its earthy New Age tones, cinematic backdrops, and ethereal vocal runs yielded an underrated record full of seductive grown-folk gems that still sound fresh 20 years after its release. “Drowndeep: Hula” remains an all-time favorite slow-motion stunner, blending aqueous textures, divine melodies, lush beats, and Maxwell’s heavenly voice in a way that makes time stand still.
