Toro Y Moi

Toro Y Moi - Still Sound
Toro Y Moi - Elise

Don't let the slightly disturbing, yet oh-so fantastically odd album art dissuade you - the brand new Toro Y Moi disc, Underneath The Pine, is filled with grooves and swanky beats galore, and features live instrumentation as an alternative to its more electronic-driven predecessor, Causers of This. Think chilled-out '70s funk beats with a disco-esque vibe, occasional jazzy synth-work, and adorable overlaid vocals - all of that and a single High Life tallboy is just enough to put a smile on my face (and maybe actually keep it there for a change).

Underneath The Pine will be released on February 22nd, via Carpark
