It's been four years since Zach Saginaw, aka Shigeto, returned home to Michigan from a stint in Brooklyn, NY, and since then, the multi-faceted musician has become a part of the fabric of Detroit's music scene.

While always having a personal approach to his projects, Saginaw's influences for his third album, "The New Monday" are more about the community of Detroit than anything else and represents a communal effort where solidarity is the key.

Going for a simplified approach of just trying to make good tracks, "The New Monday" is diverse in its styles leaning more into a dance music direction - new ground for a Shigeto project.

While it still features the jazz textures long associated with Shigeto projects, the varied elements that make up the album cohesively come together to show the distinct inspiration that Saginaw has drew from since his return home to Detroit.

Like on "Barry White", which features Detroit hip-hop artist ZelooperZ (a member of Danny Brown's Bruiser Brigade crew who Saginaw also has a side project with called ZGTO), Saginaw captures everything he's been doing all on one track.

As much as it's hip-hop influenced, it's a mutant that encompasses elements of dance music, jazz, and ambient sounds.
