2011 Review (So Far): Toro Y Moi

Chazwick Bundick, aka Toro y Moi, came on to the scene last year with the release of his album Causers of This. While his most recent effort, Underneath the Pine, fails to reach the considerable heights of his debut, it still deserves your attention. Overall, the album tends to drag in certain sections, but there are many bright moments when Bundick explores a more upbeat and funk-based sound on songs like "New Beat" and "Still Sound."

Bundick is an especially bright star in the recent "chillwave movement" and as late summer nights beckon, you will want Toro y Moi to provide the soundtrack. Listen to Causers of This opener "Blessa" below and imagine a bonfire on the beach with this in the background. Fuck, I'm excited for summer!
