I really enjoyed the last album by Toro y Moi, Under The Pine. That is an excellent album from beginning to end. I was a bit confused at seeing this EP pop us so soon after the last album.

There's a good reason he released this. It's a lot of fun! It's got a 1980's dance feel to all of the tracks! It's funky and makes you feel good just listening to it. Really glad to hear this different sound from Toro y Moi. I think it's a sound that N.E.R.D. would be proud to produce at this point in their career.

This is a killer EP! I love the way how Toro Y Moi mix up the old school sampling Con Funk Shun "Too Tight" for "Sweet", & DJ Rogers "Love Cycle" for "I can't find love" remaking Alexander O' Neal & Cherelle "Saturday Night Love" and putting his original songs on the album is enjoying to listen to. :-)

Could not be stronger. This is the perfect collection of mellow tunes that lasts about 20 minutes. All songs work well. 20 minutes later, you're done, and you can listen to it again at your leisure. Toro Y Moi has compiled a little snapshot of his style in this nice, compact release. Really beautiful vinyl too.

Again my knowledge of this artist,which extends only to his name comes from my friend Henrique. It started with a discussion of how funky music in the way I appreciate it more or less exists only on the underground music scene right at the moment. Specifically devoted to 80's era electro/boogie funk in "All Alone",the title song and "Sweet" this EP is very much devoted to the the era of the extended dance/funk mix,with echoed vocal choruses looped again and again is with "old school" electro/hip-hop/breakdance productions. The overall effect also brings in thst percussive effect of Jam/Lewis. He even covers the Alexander ONeal/Cherrelle duet "Saturday Love" here as well to further that musical tribute. That songs mixture of electronics and a strong bass/guitar rhythm is rather extended on in the clover "I Can Get Love".

Generally speaking in today's musical environment,if anyone exhibits any musical influence of funk it's usually disco/funk era style musically or yet another variation on the horn led JB type live band setting. It really hasn't been since G-Funk's reliance on the "video game" electronic sound of P-Funk or the slick sophistifunk sound that the 1980's were heavily acknowledged in modern day funk. In most EDM (electro dance music) it tends to be only the surface level of 80's pop music that's explored. This EP takes the funk of that era to explore the rhythmic bottom end of it. And all things considered? I at least get the impression from the results of this music that era's music is more important (and more neglected) in modern funk than perhaps it should be.

This is not a full album, but a 20-minute EP from the very talented Chaz Bundick, aka Toro Y Moi. Fans of other albums, however will want to hear this interesting mini project too. Short but satisfying songs.

I wouldn't exactly label this "boogie" as the main review on this page says. To me the sound is more like a revamped hybrid of 1980s soul and funk. It's got those glorious old school grooves, but processed through a thoroughly modern sonic mix. Once again, the studio wizardry of this guy is very impressive. And his cover of "Saturday Love" will bring a big smile to those of us who were around the first time that song was a hit.

I don't recall how much I spent on this.. But this is one of Toro Y Moi's greatest next to "Anything In Return"
This album is funky as demonstrated by the track "Sweet"
And all about love "(Every single song on the EP)"
And everything on this song can be danced too and is highly enjoyable if you like to dance to disco sounding sampled music!

I really enjoyed this EP I wish it had more though... but as always do your homework before spending any money and YouTube this album to figure out if its worth the price of admission.

So I heard the previous album, "Under the Pine" and I was thoroughly impressed by it. Today I thought about the album and began to wonder if Toro had released anything since that album, and to my delight I ran into this EP, "Freaking Out". After listening to the album I feel as though he has came through again with a very amazing work. I believe he has been listening to a lot of Daft Punk lately because I can tell that much of this album is heavily inspired by it. Very good Toro.
