Stream Natasha Kmeto’s Dazzling ‘Idiot Proof’

From her 'Crisis' LP, due June 18 on Dropping Gems

Portland soul-futurist Natasha Kmeto wears two hats as singer-songwriter and electronic producer on dazzling new song “Idiot Proof.” Holding court over a galloping dance-floor rhythm, the recent Best New 5 alumna booms like a freestyle diva: “It’s been awhile / I need peace.” Jolts of synth call back to ’90s house while Grimes-like whispers root “Idiot Proof” firmly in the present. The track hails from Crisis, her sophomore solo album (due June 18 on Dropping Gems) following her 2010 full-length debut, Expressor, and two era-straddling EPs. Enjoy the new one below.
