Music Ninja Radio #111: Eerie & Ethereal (May the Fourth Edition)

@themusicninja Radio: Live Fridays from 4-6PMPT on @bffdotfm. Episode #111 - 05/4/18 This May the Fourth TMN Radio special features 2-hours of wonky, left-field indie pop, electronic and house tunes. With the return of distorted synth pop legends @black-moth-super-rainbow, it was only right to build around that nucleus with some of the more experimental new pop out. Other highlights in that vein include a gorgeous, dizzying single from Pure One (@pureon3), @halfwaif's one-of-a-kind indietronic and Cuco's sun-drenched bedroom pop perfection. With it being a Star Wars holiday of sorts, the B-side of the show focused on ethereal electronic tunes with cuts from DJ Koze's phenomenal new album, Maribou State's first new single in years and a standout cut from Grant & Dan Piu's phenomenal collaborative LP "Theory of Movement." Finally, nestled in this eclectic mix are a couple Bay hip-hop gems from @mikosdagawd and Del & Amp Live.
