“New Beat” is the second track we’ve heard from Toro Y Moi’s upcoming Underneath The Pine. It’s another auspicious song too. Like Theophilus London, Toro Y Moi’s Chaz Bundick is very good at recalling a certain sound or era through his production touches (wah-wah bassline, electric pianos, etc) without making it an imitation. Like I said before, I think this is worth checking out even if you didn’t like Toro Y Moi’s first album. There are some similar keyboard sounds, but this sounds a lot more lush, and a lot groovier. Have a listen:
Underneath The Pine is out 2/22 via Carpark.
