Alexander O’Neal and Cherrelle get indie rock chillwave love from Toro Y Moi

13 Jul

No doubt you’re all excited about a new Toro Y Moi EP and the cover he does of the 1985 classic “Saturday Love” by Alexander O’Neal and Cherrelle. If anything, Toro Y Moi gets points for introducing music fans of a new era to the music of O’Neal and Cherrelle. That said, the cover is pretty limp and captures very little if any of the O’Neal’s Minneapolis R&B/soul punch. And speaking of Cherrelle, make sure you check out the video for her biggest tune, “I Didn’t Mean To Turn You On,” that came out a year before “Saturday.” Important historical note: both jams written and produced by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. Can you feel that?
