New Toki? Aww yeah ! She's popped up around blogs a lot recently. The first few tracks didn't do a lot for me, but the last half of the album was brilliant.
TOKiMONSTA - Half Shadows  [Album]
Ultra / UL3955 / WEB
MP3 / 320
Half Shadows was reportedly inspired by Haruki Murakami's 2002 novel Kafka On The Shore, and stays largely in the realm of the experimental hip-hop of her earlier work, albeit with a new focus on poppy hooks. It's a collaboration-heavy affair, featuring, among others, NYC duo MNDR, rapper Kool Keith and vocalists Jesse Boykins III, Andreya Triana and Gavin Turek.
