VIMTV Episode #287: Toro Y Moi – Underneath The Pine
Jake: Recommended, 79/100
Tom: Recommended, 73/100
Overview: Underneath The Pine has some great stylistic variety and a fun sound that is nearly unrivaled in today’s music. Beyond those great qualities, the only thing holding this album back for us is that there seems to be a separation between the music and the listener– it’s a bit hard to relate to, and the music doesn’t seem to have much of a deeper purpose past the surface level enjoyment.
