Portland composer and vocalist Natasha Kmeto dropped by and dropped jaws with her magnificent multitasking performance for KEXP's Audioasis. Surreal and vocally symphonic, Kmeto's songs stretch the boundaries of both contemporary pop, IDM and EDM with percussively intriguing compositions that slide easily into the ear but aren’t so easily forgotten. Crooning over a background of delicate digi-noise on tracks like "Take Out" and the sleek album opener and new single, "Inevitable", Kmeto pushes to impossible lofty heights of creativity. Both the thinker and party-goer in you won't help but be moved by this intricate, confessional and visceral live set of meticulously-produced music.
