New Metoronori: “Hai Yoru No Kodou Ni”

The glimpses Tokyo artist Metoronori gives into her world through her music is always fascinating — the string of albums she released last year were her finest collections of off-beat pop to date, each feeling like a door into a different dimension. Her latest song (above) is one of her more skeletal composition to date, a whispered number that, at several points, basically vanishes into itself. Here’s a case where less is more.

For a far more disconcerting side of her music, listen to the released-11-days-ago “Good Morning, Night,” which finds Metoronori singing over warped vocal samples and digital fuzz…along with one of the sturdiest beats she’s ever made. That one is above.
