CRITIC REVIEWS

Pitchfork

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

PopMatters

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.

70
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.

rated this a light 77 because this starts off absolutely amazing with the music but then the style gets more and more repetitive

This album serves as a strong example of "chill" with smooth neo-psychadelia vibes and a beyond pleasant vocal styling.

Favorite track: How I Know
