I cannot get over this dude. Chaz Bundick is THE MAN. He goes under the moniker Toro Y Moi. He released his first 2010 album, Causers of This, in the beginning of February. He is planning on releasing another LP this year, 2 in one year [CRAZY], while riding the success that COT has generated already. Certainly one of the best albums of the year. The chillwave twist that Bundick incorporates with the bliss that defines his music is commendably innovative and similarly radiant and admirable as just about any album put out this year. Here is a tune off his 2009 "Blessa" single that is a sign of what is to come on his next album, more instrumentation and a full band sound that diverges from COT but in a new, experimental way that demands to be appreciated and different. He is opening for fellow "semi-chillwave" artist The Ruby Suns at the Local 506 on Tuesday, March 23.
