Nosaj Thing + Toro y Moi – “Try”

Some, if not most songs give the feeling of going from one place to another. Think of how many music videos you’ve seen that involve travel or some sort of narrative with definite beginnings and endings. Well, this is not one of those songs. “Try” is a song which simply emanates from one corner of the room and covers everything around it in the melancholic essence of Nosaj Thing. Chaz Bundick (aka Toro Y Moi) stops by to lend his gentle croonings to the introspective dubness. After four minutes of beautiful, slow-burning noises, the track stops and hangs in the air like incense just just extinguished.

“Try” is off Home, and is out January 22, the same day that Toro y Moi’s very solid Anything in Return hits shelves. Check out our review of the latter here.

Charlotte Aitchison’s second LP is a warhead, a sonic sour bomb that conceals sneering attitude and caustic kiss-offs beneath an initially shimmering pop sheen.
