With “Still Sound”, the lead-off leak to Toro y Moi's upcoming Underneath the Pine, we're starring down the barrel of a mid-oughts DFA contender oozing with underwater synths, smooth as hell, beat driven and gorgeously produced.

The “perfect headphone disco” we described gleaming off his 2010 work Causers of This is still front and center, but we'd say it's shifted more heavily towards the “disco” and slipped off one of those headphones. And in that sense, “Still Sound” has the markings of music made for a wider, zoomed-out audience, far more than his older, smaller bedroom chemistry projects.
