Within the arenas of unfiltered synth, there may appear to be conflict in the chaos and rhythm. However,  local electronica artist, NIKI FM presents a synoptical interfacing with some wonderfully varied waves of local music. including her own original tracks! The Lost Hour is greeted with 60 minutes of at-home prerecording while both myself and NIKI FM brave the storms and flooding of last week/year all from the comfort of our own homes.

Check out NIKI FM's band camp below, and be on the look out for their upcoming project with Cherub Dream Records!:

You can also catch NIKI FM at the following upcoming dates in The Bay:

Happiest of Mondays! ~tom
