Toro Y Moi – Still Sound (2011)

YouTube – AmazoniTunes

‘Still Sound’ is off Toro Y Moi’s second album Underneath The Pine. From South Carolina, Chazwick Bundick and his Toro Y Moi sound is suitably lazy, sun-soaked and cool. You will notice an air of the French invasion (Daft Punk, Air, Mr Oizo and Etienne de Crecy) and Money Mark’s keyboard of the late 1990s – that mix of dreamy electronic funk, jazz, and hip hop that was so refreshing, and, let’s face it, still is. Have a great weekend.
