I’ve really been enjoying Toro Y Moi’s upcoming album Under The Pine so I figure I should share a track and convince you to take a listen. The album is a great progression of Chaz’s sound. He’s technically only put out one official album but in all I’d say he has like 4 or 5 albums worth of material, and this new one is the best so far. The album reminds me of soul records but with a contemporary, dreamy style that makes you want to nod your head to the music. Classic drum beats and fuzzed out guitars over synthy beats combined with Chaz’s smooth as silk voice. As I wrote on my Twitter, this is my favorite album of 2011 so far.
I decided to post Go With You (I’m posting the video to another song tomorrow) because it’s gives a good sense of what this album sounds like. If you’re into this track you’re going to be pleasantly surprised with the rest of the album.
