The tape uploaded to Dropbox shortly after Outer Peace is now available to stream.
Toro y Moi has released his 12-track Soul Trash mixtape, originally uploaded to Dropbox back in January, to streaming services. This official release reveals the tape's song titles as well as features from Elijah Kessler, Old Grape God and Caleon Fox. On his Bandcamp page, Toro y Moi's Chaz Bear writes that this new version "features the same songs but presented in a more hi-fi setting."
A 30-minute short film directed by Laneya Billingsley arrives with the tape. The psychedelic video features colourfully edited tour footage, candid moments and surreal VFX, all set to Toro y Moi's trippy tunes.
"Chaz Bear and I sought to create a vibrating immersive piece that mirrored the soft melancholic bounciness of the mixtape, making sure every delicate part was exactly how we envisioned," Billingsley explains via an official press release. "We wanted the video to feel like a sort of tour through internal rooms led by Chaz our tour guide, or soul guide if you will. With a handheld controller, grinning from ear to ear, Chaz navigates the turbulent internal atmosphere searching for each intangible floaty room buried within, each holding a different sound, feeling and sublime visual experience."
