A very interesting look at the artist known as TOKiMONSTA. From how she constructs her music to her battle back from 2 brain surgeries.
Truck door, rocks, snare (you'll understand if you watch...tease.....tease)
I figured out why I'm rarely nostalgic musically and I think it's because there's enough people out there doing it (pseudoly for me)
Vicariously nostalgic through another's eyes. Thanks to all!!!
At times smokey, twangy, aggressive and always enticing is this release spotted yesterday on Bandcamp
"sort of girl group" Juniore self coined their music as "ye-ye noir", a French approximation of sixties beat music with their own dark take on it. I'm smitten
My #NewMusicFriday started by seeing mostly singles on my recommended list until I looked elsewhere and found the new TOKiMONSTA - Oasis Nocturne.
A review stated "a bouncy indie rock crossover with equal parts thumping 808s and chunky guitar chords" about the attached cut. Mmmmm 808s
I've found my main tunes for the day. Great mix of guests and styles all under the command of her exquisite production. I must remind as well of her 2 brain surgeries in 2016 where she lost her sight and hearing but enough of my prattle....
Moments ago the 2nd single from the upcoming Purity Ring release

Sunday Eve 9 pm pacific time is an odd time to release an LP especially if it's rumoured to be your last. Was quite surprised last year when my 13 yr old nephew was trying to tell me about them (but he kept pronouncing the name wrong, I blame his mom 😁😆). Always a fan but tend to lean toward small (one LP listen per 6 months) doses

Yesterday was driving with my lady friend to meet my visiting sister. On the way we're listening to Dj Shadow - The Pathetic Age and she says "is this new music?" and begins to make turntable scratching motions
I was so proud. Thanks to Kid Koala and the Turntable Orchestra show for teaching a 50+ yr old Hong Kong native the basic techniques. Changing lives forever 🙏😊😋
If you have not yet, you must.

After those great dub tracks from earlier this week I was reminded of another project. This one's from (correct me if I'm wrong) Toronto. Friends have told me it's the music that is played before Big Sugar (if your from Cent. Ontario you know) concerts. A production company reworked their tunes in a dub style. Always enjoy this lp. Happy Sunday Funday
And then I just had to share this with a friend. She had never heard it before.
I think I'll have.........Toast
