Shelf Nunny & Eriko Toyoda | Vital Signs / Lady Lack

You don’t want to let this song pass you by. Santa Cruz producer Christian Gunning (aka Shelf Nunny) and Japanese vocalist Eriko Toyoda combined their DIY talents to create this beautifully hypnotic piece called “Vital Signs / Lady Lack”. It’s a sensual song (“Your silky glance /Pretty petty moves / Seductive features …”) that finds cool ways to overlap and distort the lead vocal track, blending slight delays into unique soulful harmonies. The song has touches of folktronic and chill — but finds spaces to alter beats and shift style with subtlety. There are a number of clicking sounds, light percussion, cool organ-synth, samples, and a wonderful sense of electronic arrangement. One of my favorite tracks so far this year. You can follow Shelf Nunny at facebook and twitter. Follow Eriko Toyoda at facebook and twitter.  — David D. Robbins Jr.
