Surprises are an equal part of the music industry. When artists drop new music it can revitalize who they are and their careers shine. For Toro Y Moi things have been shimmering upwards. With a new surprise EP Sandhills just dropped he gives us all a little more to care about as we get down. Stream it below before preordering a copy from Dead Oceans before it drops on October 20.
The easy going nature of “Back Then” feels like it’s worthy of your ears. The way “Sidelines” feels like a swan song after a game is epic. “The View” holds your hands as it escapes into the forest for it’s own sound and “Said Goodbye To Rock n Roll” is a ballad heavy acoustic jam.
The songs can be streamed wherever you stream music. Sandhills can be preordered from Dead Oceans Records before it drops physically on October 20. Toro Y Moi will be at Camp Flog Gnaw in Los Angeles, CA on November 11 & 12.
