Toro Y Moi – “New Beat”


Toro Y Moi, the bilingually-titled disco-chillwave project of Chaz Bundick, is gearing up for the release of a second record, Underneath the Pine, in a few weeks, and luckily Bundick’s dropped another of the record’s tracks (first offering “Still Sound” met the blogosphere in December) as a preview.

“New Beat” is our latest taste of the record – it’s got that Washed Out Caribbean club-night feel to it, like drunkenness and humidity. Wah-wah synths meet wandering basslines and Bundick’s confessional lyrics – it’s a little melancholy, but it’ll effortlessly inspire you to dance your problems away. Check it out.
