New Stones Taro: Black Bread

Stones Taro has been on a tear this year, and Black Bread only adds to the winning streak. Released via Glasgow’s Johnny Johnny, the three-track set finds the Kyoto producer dabbling in a variety of house stylings, playing around with faded sounds and acid touches on the opening title track before getting a little thumpier on the disorienting “Living With Other.” The highlight, though, is “Merge,” which combines a persistent beat with synth wooze and samples of Michael Jackson drifting by. It is an out-of-time piece of jubilation. Get it here, or listen below.
