New Tofubeats: “Callin”

True to form, Kobe’s tofubeats celebrated October 2nd (aka “Tofu Day” in Japan) by sharing a new song dubbed “Callin.” For folks craving the mode he primarily operated in before jumping up to the majors, this is a lovely throwback…though fans of his recent work (cough, like me, cough) still will too. No guests, just tofubeats himself singing through several layers of vocal manipulation over a sparse electronic backing peppered by some piano touches. This is tofubeats in his most sad-boy state, singing about waiting for a phone call while his singing breaks apart and turns nearly inhuman at points, selling the emotion at the center. Listen above.
