Toro Y Moi’s latest LP is a noticeable improvement compared to the sketchbook of ideas that made up his last album, Causers of this. Underneath the Pine is loaded with light, pretty arrangements and dancey disco beats. The songwriting and vocals aren’t always standout, though.

    i really like this album! i’m still creeped out by the cover though. and you should obviously review the new Lykke Li next because all bloggers have a crush on her and the LP is out there

    Hey, there’s this amazing band I just heard, called The Psychic Paramount, that’s something you should consider for future reviews…

    You should absolutely consider reviewing the band ‘micachu’. Only one album called ‘jewellery’ that came out in 2009 but absolutely vital and really pushes boundaries

    This album reminds me a lot of Air.
