5.0 out of 5 stars Great EP!! September 29, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Maybe Not The Exact Place I'd Expect To Find The Funk October 28, 2012
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars I have slept on this album. January 22, 2012
By Will
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good. October 6, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
It was short and sweet. I feel like it isn't a complete album, kind left hanging. Causers of This is definitely my favorite album of his.
