Your Review



If he was feeling any pressure to validate himself and his peers, Underneath the Pine doesn't show it.


It makes your brain work, and its whole approach to the band’s new sound is, dare I say it, progressive.

A.V. Club

While Underneath The Pine is another killer late-night make-out album, it doesn’t do much to help Toro Y Moi stake out its own identity.

Tiny Mix Tapes

That Toro Y Moi's new record Underneath the Pine is distinctly a product of his songwriting, without sounding exactly like his 2010 debut, suggests that chillwave may still have some legs to it after all.

No Ripcord

As a record its tunes are as transient and illusive as its aforementioned heritage dictates – unlike pop they aren’t wired to become cattle-branded in your memory for days on end.

Before, I thought I was delusional as fuck about this album, seeing as how I barely listened to it. After a good relisten, this is easily a favorite. So dreamy, relaxing, and upbeat. I could listen to this forever.
