Jennifer Lee aka TOKiMONSTA prefers to work late – or early, depending on how you look at it. Most of her music is made between two and seven in the morning, because at that time of night “my mind works in strange and mysterious ways.” Hence the title of this EP, a series of warm but decidedly woozy pieces of music, the soundtrack to the oddest, most beautiful dreams you’ve ever had.
From the bouncing bass-beds of “Bright Shadows,” the Cocteau’s-meet-LA-Beat of “Darkest Dim” (like “Little Pleasures,” featuring the exquisite vocals of Gavin Turek), on into “Moving Forward” (which sounds like the music R2D2 makeslove to), the driving, relentless beat of “Day Job,” this is an EP suffused with both warmth and creativity.

We’ve been talking with Lotus for a long while about a mix for the Stones Throw podcast. Here’s one he just sent over … no theme, no loops, just “records found in the valley.” Lovers Melt, mixed by Flying Lotus. No track list available at the moment.
