Soul to Seoul

TOKiMONSTA's Half Shadows is the best way she could of fallowed Midnight Menu. I find this album to be dripping textures both rigged and smooth. (A brief of each track)

"The Center: The song is very bouncy with a great sounding sample-based kick drum while its being lifted by the gritty synth line in the background"
"The Force: This song is filled with mellow tone distant and close percussion and a low sub drum. I really didn't care for the rap on this track"
"808: It seems like it's just The Center but more synth based and has less reverb, still very bouncy but doesn't have the same feel which made it lose the effect"
"Focused Chaos: The track is very grimy from the drums to the constant over looped sample in the lead"
"Clean Slate: The vocals on this track just glide over it so well and is very calm, from this point on the whole album really smooths out with a few rugged synths and percussion"
"Foolish: Taking the same singer from Clean Slate really blends these two tracks together. I enjoyed how lovely this track is, everything just falls into place and gives out a very Nu Disco vibe"
"Go With It: The vocal loops and layering over the tribal sounding percussion goes over perfectly with the dropping and rising synth work.
"Spilling Autumn: This track is very hunting and pixelated with a fuzzy feeling with a melodic xylophone/synth-key floating underneath rising into a mellow jumpy synth lead.
"Sweet Williams: Continuing the haunting vibe taken from Spilling Autumn it's a little more sweet with its slightly off tones and sighing vocals melting together. Through out the whole feeling shifts as the production on the track revolves around your head.
"Soul to Seoul: A melancholy guitar, moaning vocal samples, and Tokimansta's vocals coming out a little more clear. Everything in this track just bleeds together so nicely (my favorite besides Foolish) it can sound either really depressing or lovely depending oh how you're feeling going into the track.
"Green: Getting out of the dreamscape the last three tracks wrapped your mind in this track comes with clear vocals and melodic bass lines and clear cutting drums.
"Waiting For the Break of Dawn: This sounds like something Gold Panda would of put out. A jazzy feeling followed with a layering of distant moans and it seems like there is a breeze going through out the track.
"Moon Rise: There are some soul feeling vocal layovers and mellow synths. This track just starts sinking of a pretty hue of the night as the song seeps on. A great closer to the album.
"Yo B! (Bonus track): the drums make it seem like someone is knocking in the walls around you and the choppy synths with a lot of vocal layering and loud verses sound like something Grimes could of released.

Low points:
- The starting was very different from the rest of the album.
- The vocals on The Force.
High Points:
- The majority of the album had great vocal work and bleed together nicely.
- Very catchy and great mellow tracks.

Over all it was a pretty great release and in my opinion her best work 4/5

She is beautiful

and so is her music.

Open Your Mind To …

One of my favorite albums from 2013!

Biography

Born: Los Angeles, CA

Genre: Electronic

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Tokimonsta takes her name from "Toki," the Korean word for rabbit, and the hyperbolic hip-hop term “monsta,” similarly, Tokimonsta looks as timid and innocent as a schoolgirl, and makes beats that are beastly enough in scope to compete with big hitters like Flying Lotus and Daedelus. Born in the South Bay area of Los Angeles, Jennifer Lee's attention turned from classical piano lessons to making left-field recordings with an SP-404 and Fruityloops software. In college, as her love of hip-hop continued...
