The lead-off single from the MORNING FLIGHT relaunch on Curation Records is MOONLIGHT MA from RYAN BAINERyan reflects on how the song came about... "around this time I was spending tons of time in LA, and remember playing a lot of acoustic music with Sam Blasucci (Mapache) and Austen McCutchen. I was living out of a back studio at my aunt Maureen Baine’s El Sereno home…and those guys would come over and hang around a fire pit singing and strumming tons of songs, standards, and originals. Moonlight Ma came out of one of those sessions. A lot of the songs were written during my time in that backyard…. " MORE ON RYAN BAINE & MORNING FLIGHT:The mid-20s musician from the surf-side community of San Clemente CA  who is also an art/design & photography enthusiast, basically likes "anything that makes noise!"Ryan has created an album of 70s-style singer/songwriter jams with soul grooves and surf soundtrack atmospheres. Together with a stunning assortment of musicians from the vibrant So Cal music scene Ryan crafted the shared sonic experience that is MORNING FLIGHT.Hunkered down "until the money ran out" at LA's analog hot-spot Palomino Sound, MORNING FLIGHT resulted from the Ryans' time between San Clemente and El Sereno in Los Angeles.Produced alongside Jason Soda, the two dudes worked in the studio putting on the finishing touches to the sessions of a close-knit group of gifted players from the likes of Howlin Rain, Mapache, Grateful Shred, GospelbeacH. The friends put a glow on Ryan's songs with a wide range of mood and textures.  Choral beach-folk, surf, sunsets, sunrises, and dance floor souled-up funk songs along with jammy subtleties and a sense of camaraderie propel the songs. Morning Flight is the first record numbered (CURED001) from the Curation catalog and represents the California Curated Cool aesthetic just as well as any record on the label...not in the sense of we are "cooler" than you but the cool vibes of harmony, community & togetherness that MORNING FLIGHT brings. JJ Golden oversaw the remastering and cutting for vinyl at Golden Mastering from the original 2019 tapes. Influences are as diverse as the sonics. Ryan reflects  "I think for this record. I was heavy into singer/songwriter stuff from early 70s but at the same time (and always) heavily into soul/dance/funk music: Bobby Womack, Sly Stone (my god), and Gil Scott Heron. LA country from 60s/70s was HUGE. Byrds, Poco, Neil Young, Crosby, Parsons, all the standards on that front. NRPS….(SF scene) kind of was a student of a lot of different tastes around the time of this record"  There's also a heavy nod to the "Baggy" scene from Northern UK in the 90s Stone Roses, Primals, Happy Mondays, Verve which all through the veins of a 24-year-old surfer come out in one glorious piece of vinyl...take the MORNING FLIGHT
