Better Late Than Never: Toro Y MoiPosted: September 4, 2011
This summer, my taste expanded. It was only a slight expansion, but my ears were still opened to new music! One of the current artists (outside of hip-hop) that I heard and almost immediately became a fan of was Toro Y Moi. His music is difficult to describe. I’m pretty sure it is categorized under “chillwave”, but who knows what the fuck that means. It’s kind of electronic, with roots in alternative rock and hip-hop. He doesn’t rap at all, but the instrumentation and drums have clear influences in the genre. The music is very different from most of what I listen to right now, but it is also very aesthetically pleasing. Read more to take a look at his albums and listen to some previews of his songs.
