New Maho Littlebear: MLB

Been a while since Maho Littlebear shared new music, but she’s back with MLB, a four song rumbler of electro-pop. MLB finds the Kyoto creator laying down mid-tempo dance-pop music, sometimes unfolding at a jittery, almost creeping pace (opener “Want”) to moving at a more pop friendly pace (“Skippy” tells you what you need to know right in the title). Over any form goes her singing, delivered in monotone and across MLB offering an uneasy longing to every song. She works best when the sounds mesh perfectly with her delivery, as they do on standout “Lovely,” which pairs her vocals up with synths that just wooze out. Listen above.
