In the final moments of Universal Beings--at the end of a radiant hour and a half of polymorphic pulse and atmospheric shimmer--Makaya McCraven breaks a blissful silence with a practical question. "You guys got all that?" he asks, presumably addressing the mobile recording crew set up in a garage behind a house in Los Angeles. McCraven, a drummer and producer with an alchemist's touch, and Jeff Parker, a guitarist possessed of similar magic, have just glided through the impromptu dreamscape that will provide this album with a title track.
