One of the founders of the ubiquitous new genre known, somewhat unfortunately, as “chillwave,” Toro Y Moi layers heavy R&B influence beneath layers of reverbed-out haze. On upcoming EP Underneath the Pine, he pays tribute to those influences with a cover of Cherrelle and Alexander O’Neal’s ‘80s hit “Saturday Love.”

“Saturday Love” came out in 1985 and, despite reaching the top ten, has been all but forgotten. That certainly explains how few (us included, we admit) immediately realized Toro Y Moi’s song was a cover. A press release set us straight and we’re glad to be able to post the smooth summer jam. Download it below.
