Music Around Town

Toro Y Moi/Astronauts

When: Mon., Sept. 28, 8 p.m. 2015

Thanks to his acclaimed first few records, Toro y Moi became known as a pioneer of the chillwave genre but his new album What For? represents a stylistic departure for singer-guitarist Chaz Bundick as the album has a vintage, '70s rock feel to it. Inspired by the retro sounds of Todd Rundgren and Tim Maia, the album could nearly pass as yacht rock. But Bundick, who often sings about relationships gone awry, inflects the music with enough of an edge to prevent from becoming cheesy. (Niesel)
