Earlier this year, New Orleans-based guitarist Dominic Minix was performing with Christian Scott during the esteemed trumpet player’s NPR Tiny Desk set. Now–after five years of cultivating a sound that’s somewhere between Robert Glasper and Bad Brains–Minix has released his first official solo project, Cannonball Adderall. His new alias, Yung Vul, helps to distinguish the freshly dropped four-track EP from his previously released music as The Dominic Minix Quartet. “Nameless” might be the EP’s most tame track, but at nearly eight minutes this sweeping, serene jazz instrumental seems wildly appropriate for the upcoming winter days.
Watch the music video for “Wine and Cookies” below.
