Dntel + Toro Y Moi + Painted Palms + Ingall

Posted by Jakub

I’m soo happy to hear these honest sounds from the new Dntel EPs, lets bury Postal Service in the backyard and pretend we never worked with Ben Gibbard. One listen all the way thru both EPs had me feeling like he really loved what the outcome was on these songs.

Have you asked yourself how the next Toro Y Moi album might sound like? well here’s a taste, a lot more funk and relying on his given talents, no smoke and mirrors just beautiful key work.

The intro to Painted Palms’ All Of Us is being played on loop, just those first few notes, I LOVE IT!

I don’t know much about Australian born Reuben Ingall but I do enjoy his loose structure and processing, a nice change of pace for both manipulated string work, not too avant garde and not too trendy.

After listening to Toro’s new work, I suddenly had a large collection of leather bound books carelessly stacked on a rich mahogany bookshelf.

I just got a BRILLIANT idea: what if you were to release your “mixtapes” as a podcast? It would be a really handy way to subscribe, and you’d get them on your mobile player of choice to listen to whenever you have the time!

Love the mix. Anyone willing to suggest any other chillwave artists similar to Toro? I’ve been a fan of Shoegaze for years now, but the mix of Synth-pop and Shoegaze is fantastic. The scene is small, so I can’t seem to find anything outside of Toro, Washed Out, and Delorean. There is no doubt in my mind that this is the next genre to blow up in popularity in the years to come.
