I apologise in advance that I’m repping Toro again, we all know he is a living, breathing god amongst us, but as a god we should be praising him and praise him I shall. We’re about a week away from Toro y Moi’s new album, Boo Boo, and this second cut from it ‘You and I’ offers another side to this new soundscape Chaz is building. Although you could almost classify 90% of the Toro y Moi discography as ballads, this one has a delicious synth structure to go with Chaz’s intimate lyrics. A really subtle arrangement definitely leaves a groove for the listener, but it’s a very subdued track overall. The focus here is the story, and it leave you captivated instantly. If every ballad sounded like this, I would listen to Love Song Dedications so much more.
Boo Boo is out July 7 via Carpark Records.
