Costa Rican producer mntjy’s debut album her note may be the best example of the power that the internet has in 2016. It’s loaded with post-regional sounds, combining the lonely, unsettling atmosphere of hypnagogic pop artists like Dean Blunt & James Ferraro with the murky r&b of acts like PARTYNEXTDOOR and DVSN. Paying homage to his birthplace, he also tops it off with both English and Spanish vocals and samples over the beats. It’s one of the few alternative pop releases that takes a new angle on the genre, one that’s been worn to death over the past few years. her note is a must-listen for anyone looking for a starker, stranger take on the nocturnal sound that dominates radio stations and playlists across the country.
