Toro Y Moi is a master of psychedelic electronic music. Chaz Bundic is close friends with fellow chillwave artist Ernest Greene (Washed Out), together they defined the genre of chillwave. Toro y Moi's second album, Underneath the Pine, was released February, 2011 and marks the point in which Chaz moved toward a new style. Underneath the Pine was made up of all live instrumentation and contained no samples, a great change from his previous album Causers of This. Chaz stated, "...what influenced Underneath the Pine was finding stuff that I wanted to sample for Causers. A lot of the things I sampled for Causers ended up being the main musical inspiration for Underneath the Pine." Chaz felt by then it was time to move beyond chillwave. "New Beat" is the second track on the album and seems talk of the new sound he is going for on the album. It is quite refreshing to hear actual instruments mesh on this album. "Still Sound" is a bit more down-tempo and applies a dreamy sound to Chaz's vocals, providing a bit of the chillwave vibe before leaving it behind. This is a chill album and a transitory album for Toro Y Moi as he moved away from a full chillwave sound.
