Toro Y Moi “Freaking Out” EP (2011)

January 4, 2012

After scoring a rather splendid album at the beginning of the year, Toro Y Moi added another release to his spotless collection. Freaking Out EP is a straight-to-dancefloor five-track haven for all those not tired of New Year’s Eve. Bundick did his best to make disco beats ooze from every second of his latest offering. However, I miss the experimental and psychedelic nature of his two albums. All Alone and Freaking Out can get you sweat yet they seem too obvious. Sweet, on the other hand, is a completely different story. Toro Y Moi chops his voice to gorgeous effects. The true showstopper is the final track, I Can Get Love. It is a trance-like club meditation on love that gives the middle finger to the sceptics.
