Toro Y Moi

Toro Y Moi is a band that’d probably be tossed aside as “electronica” to most people. But when I think of electronic music I think of cheesy drum beats, fake vinyl scratches, and droning melodies. While Toro Y Moi isn’t completely void of the former, it’s refreshingly light on the latter two.

For an illuminating example, compare this recording of “Blessa” to the same track on the Daytrotter session from this past September {free download}.
