N-E-W: Toro Y Moi, Lord Huron & The Fresh & Onlys (summer sounds in dark cold winter times)

The albums of the year list is taking over my life, must be off to work, here are a quick few to keep you busy and hopefully happy!

New Toro Y Moi album Underneath The Pine is due out Feb 22nd. Dreamy, funky and just plain nice. More of this please

Toro Y Moi - Still Sound Alt

Lord Huron is the best new music I've heard in a bit. It got me rather excited. The long and short of it is that Benjamin S. is based in LA and makes summery indie pop inspired, seemingly by The Lion King. Afro-beat sounds, upbeat, danceable and absolutely wonderful. Good catch! Two E.P's here to listen to and download for a small fee. Magic!

Lord Huron - Mighty Alt

It's all about the summer sounds as we approach the shortest day of the year north of the Equator. Hope this benefits all you southies as you crack out the barbeques and shorts ...bastards. As for us northies, well we're just fine imagining what heat and light used to be like. The Fresh and Only's, another gem. Happy out, rough production, all in all magical sounds. Play It Strange is out now.

The Fresh & Onlys - Tropical Island Suite Alt
