Beehive Candy reviews Tomten single “Limbo’s Daughter”

“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…”

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.

JP’s Music Blog reviews Tomten’s forthcoming full-length Cremation Songs, out July 7th on LP/CD/DL from Plume Records:

Tomten’s beautiful songwriting is felt in the wonderful presentation of ‘Laurent’s Tomb’ and the lush, grand sound of ‘For The Worse.’ They experiment with their sound on sixties-inspired ‘King Of Viridia,’ before finishing their new album with the quiet, “dream pop” of ‘Leaving Joyous Gard’ and the steady, soft rock tones of ‘Still Life With Sylvie.’
