Here's an Exclusive Stream of TOKiMONSTA's New Album, 'Half Shadows'By Noisey Staff
Though we're not too far into 2013 yet, this year has been packed with incredible new albums. Joining that roster is LA native Jennifer Lee, AKA TOKiMONSTA. Lee has been hard at work patching together an intricate web of sounds for her new release, Half Shadows, that is as diverse in genre as it is in mood. Each track on Half Shadows offers something different, ranging from dirty house to soft, heart-melting soundscapes that still make you dance through the sadness. The touch of hip hop and R&B flavors only adds to TOKiMONSTA's palette of sonic textures. Lee has really come through with a collections of songs that show her diversity and technical expertise, all the while keeping true to her artist identity.
We're very proud to have an exclusive stream of Half Shadows for you to feast your ears upon. Listen below, and grab the album April 9th via Ultra Music.
