Iranian-American electronic musician Michael Maleki, who records and performs as Kodak to Graph, conceived his most debut album, Isa, as an audio travelogue of sorts, tracing his journey from his childhood home in Gainesville, Florida to his current residence in Los Angeles.

The patchwork soundscape incorporates elements of ambient, jazz, hip-hop, dream-pop, psychedelia and more, along with assorted field recordings (chirping birds), lending the hazy recording the feel of traipsing through Maleki’s memories.

Big Wild, Obeson and Gold Dash also perform.
