Underneath the Pine is the excellent sophomore full-length from Toro y Moi - . The album evokes Stereolab, Robert Wyatt, and Ariel Pink, and it also incorporates subtle hip-hop and R&B touches. But Underneath the Pine has its own of-the-moment sound. It opens with Intro, Chi Chi, a track with a head-nodding groove, blissful distortion, and wordless vocals; it serves as a good example of Bundick’s way with pleasing timbres and entrancing riffs.

South Carolina electronic pop artist Toro Y Moi is set to follow up his debut album Causers of This with his sophomore effort, Underneath the Pine, February 22 via Carpark (that's the orally fixated cover art above). When we got on the phone with Toro mastermind Chaz Bundick, he was heading back home from tour and had just endured the precarious tightrope walk that is airport security- sans groping, thankfully. Chaz talked to us about his musical and emotional inspirations for the new record, as well as his surprising influence on current bedroom artists. Chaz Bundick: Yeah, man. was pretty much sort of written in between tours. I was already working on it when Causers came out. Everything was done pretty much in February and June.

Instead, Underneath the Pine takes some of the chill out of the wave and strips away much of the murk. The resulting record is a shiny, dreamy affair that retains all the hooks and feel of the first album but adds some energy and pop immediacy. The biggest change, apart from the more focused production, is that in between albums Bundick seems to have (mostly) forsaken his shoegaze fetish and discovered Stereolab and their take on space age bachelor pad music.

Toro y Moi's second album, Underneath the Pine, was released on February 22, 2011. The album was recorded at Bundick's home in-between tours while supporting Causers of This. Underneath the Pine marked a stylistic departure from the previous album in that it was made up of all live instrumentation and contained no samples. Bundick cites horror movie soundtracks, space disco, and film composers Piero Umiliani and François de Roubaix as inspiration for the album's sound what influenced Underneath the Pine was finding stuff that I wanted t. .

Reviews (1)
More drawn up than the previous album, this work has less affects of ambient music, and more complex textures.
