As if the announcement of Toro y Moi's new LP, Beneath the Pine, wasn’t enough, Houses, went and released a cover of Causers of This standout, “Talamak.” It premiered today on Turntable Kitchen along with another new Houses track that was recorded exclusively for blog curator Matthew Hickey. It’s all part of Houses’ rather interesting approach to saving up money for a tour.
Head here to donate and get yourself an exclusively made track, or just pre-order their album. Either way, you win with more Houses. Oh, and check out Toro’s Underneath the Pine tracklist here.

"Leave Everywhere" is the new single from South Carolina’s Chaz Bundick, aka Toro y Moi. I’ve had the pleasure of talking with Chaz at a couple shows down south and he is probably one of the kindest, humblest guys you’ll encounter, but it seems that he’s also into throwing curve balls. What threw me off at both shows was how many songs he played with little or no help from his KORG synth and MacBook. It was basically him performing with just an electric guitar, standard vocals, and some laid back dance moves. Now, I can’t be sure if he played “Leave Everywhere” either time, but I’m certain he played “Blessa” in this electronic-stripped sound and it actually sounded pretty sick. That being said, I was curious to hear the direction his new recorded material would take, so the sound of his newest A-side didn’t surprise me too much. With that, just expect something a little different from Toro’s upcoming Leave Everywhere 7” (at least the A-side), and be sure to pick it up 20 July on Carpark Records.
