Toro Y Moi is the sound the world has been waiting for. This multi-cultural juggernaut gathers up the best musical elements from around the globe R&B, Indie Rock, Electronic Dance and Psychedelica and creates something-freaking-else! Over the course of his first groundbreaking full length "Causers Of This", Toro Y Moi turns the aforementioned musics upside-down with his breathtakingly innovative approach. The incendiary power of Toro Y Moi's funky synth and guitar play, pumping digital rhythms and gorgeously bright vocal harmonies makes for a formidable combination.
Mix something like Bel Biv Devo with sample based house music like Daft Punk a bit of easy listening and have Thomas Mars of United era Phoenix do some vocs - now you have something like Toro Y Moi's album Causers of This. It's not the most exciting record in the universe, but it's kinda nice to chill to and just have in the background
My fav song is "You Hid" I think.
I got into this album song by song, and I would recommend "Blessa" and "Low shoulder" as great jumping off points.
The raw emotion blending into the music and lyrics makes this cd an experience more than just an album. Ryan Bailey
If you're a fan of shoegaze/dream-pop and sampled hip-hop you will enjoy this.
