Ahh I love when artists share with us their studio scraps.  There’s a bit of romanticism in imagining all that could have been.  TOKiMONSTA‘s Half Shadows album was a beautifully crafted collage of soundscapes, somewhere between gritty and silky with elements of hip-hop, R&B and house music.

A couple days ago, TOKi shared with us “Garlic Hearts,” an outtake that didn’t make the record, but still carries lush production and bass-driven, delicious bounce.  Can’t get enough of the vibes.

Stream “Garlic Hearts” here, and pick up Half Shadows on iTunes via Ultra Records.
