“Limbo’s Daughter” is an engaging and quite timeless sounding song. At the heart of the song are some most agreeable vocals and harmonies, however the musical arrangement and fine musicianship nudge the song up, making the forthcoming album a very interesting prospect.
Thanks to Beehive Candy for the kind words about “Limbo’s Daughter” off Tomten‘s forthcoming LP, out next month on Plume Records!
Glacially Musical reviews the forthcoming album from Tomten, Cremation Songs, out from Plume Records on 7/7/17:
“…there are certainly large swaths of dreamy pianos, fizzy vocals, and mellow guitar licks…but there are instances…[of] rock’n’roll. The piano switches to Jerry Lee Lewis. The guitars get crunchy…”
“’Weissnichtwo’ is a bouncy, jangly pop song that brings to mind early swooning rock and roll while also sounding fresh and new.”
Another new Tomten track is out today — stream “Weissnichtwo” at Glide Magazine and pick up the new LP on 7/7/17 from Plume Records.
MAGNET Magazine has the first listen of Tomten‘s new track “Cloud Man Calling”: “it’s a gentle and effervescent tune that’s sure to get you on the hook for the album’s July 7 release.”
Download the 2nd single from their forthcoming album CREMATION SONGS, out 7/7/17 on Plume Records on LP/CD/DL.
I wrote ‘Cloud Man Calling’ after doing some music with my friend Shenadoah for this theater event called The Crystal Palace. It was a bizarre interactive tour through this old building in Seattle with different characters and winter-themed rooms. We had our synthesizers set up in this stairwell where we played little jingles wearing these stupid silver suits with our faces painted white. After the performance, I liked the idea of writing a song about Cloud Man–whatever he/it is, still a mystery to me.
“The melodies are great, the instrumentation is flawless, and vocals are solid.”
