River Tiber – “Indigo”

River Tiber is the monkier of Canadian singer/producer/multi-instrumentalist Tommy Paxton-Beesley, and his newest album Indigo pushes the boundaries of R&B and hip-hop production into some unusual places. His vocal delivery is sometimes pitched to sound reminiscent of Mariah Carey, and sometimes he multi-tracks his voice into a dozen ghost-choruses to make it sound like a mixture of Jodeci and Flying Lotus. It’s really hard to directly classify this guy, but regardless his music is really good, and I see why he has been starting to blow up this year.
