toro y moi is seriously good music, has anyone seen him live? just seems like he'd be really bad live.

But I dunno, from the videos I've see, it doesn't look that bad.
Jun 24, 2010 @ 14:49
fuck yeah
favorite artist right now and probably for a while
Jun 24, 2010 @ 14:55
one of my fav dudes ATM. Little disappointed after leaving his show though, only played for about 45 minutes and didn't do some of my favorite tunes but WHATEVA, was still worth it. ruby suns sort of blew dick after him though.

yeah i dont understand any of his songs
Jun 25, 2010 @ 17:06
during interviews, he mentioned that they are about family, girls, his life, etc.

ey mane, im gonna help you a little. the only songs i really understand are imprint after, talamak, low shoulder, you hid.

just listen to when you can actually hear his lyrics.

low shoulder for example. "if you rest, for me tonight, i'll let you drive off in the morning; i dont want, you in the shoulder, where no one comes around." this could be interpreted in a number of ways pretty much. it could be that the girl wants to leave but he wants her to wait and talk it out then shes free in the morning....

imprint after is much simpler. "why would you want to come back to me, was it cause i didnt want to leave, i want you to know ill keep you out of harm, but you got to know you left your mark, on me." pretty much chick tryna get back with him but he puts the brakes on it cause of the after affects of their past relationship...these are just my understandings though.
