Jam of the Day: T.O.L.D. - "Lucifer's Eyes"
Dan Smith, a London musician currently working in L.A., records under the moniker T.O.L.D., which stands for The Order Of Life And Death. His track "Lucifer's Eyes" sounds like the perfect mesh of The xx and Jamie xx's solo work (which honestly would likely propel that band a bit more forward). While the steel drums and overall music of the track provide a sunny feel to the song, Smith's lonely voice contrasts this mood with an almost despairing tone. It's a subtle track that will take some time to grow on you. If this song is any indication, Smith is going to be someone to watch out for.
