New Tomodati: EP 2016

Preconceptions can be a drag. Producer Tomodati has spent most of the year making frantic, at times unhinged electro-pop, so you’d figure something titled EP 2016 would follow suit. But nope — the three song set jumps from sweetly sung robo ballads about love (the charming “We Are Not Cinderella,” which flashes a few instances of unpredictably via skittery beats, but is ultimately a sweetly sung bit of melancholy with a few chaotic beeps thrown in) to busy but ultimately warm dance numbers (the sample-rich “Virtual Super Reality”). Tomodati has long been an adept song maker, but this EP showcases his depth. Listen above.
