NPR chaz bear toro y moi

Three months later and we still can’t get enough of Toro y Moi‘s Outer Peace album. Today, NPR brought the mind-blowing record to life as a part of their ongoing Tiny Desk concert series. During the intimate show, the multi-hyphenate artist stripped back all the synth and auto-tune to perform acoustic versions of “Freelance,” “Ordinary Pleasure,” “Laws of the Universe,” and “New House.”

Last week, Toro y Moi made a special appearance on Ellen so he’s really been making his rounds on the big screen. Watch the full set in the video below and head to NPR for a rundown of the whole experience. While you’re here, revisit our album review along with this in-depth profile on Toro y Moi.
