Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Toro Y Moi/Toxie

When: Tue., July 16, 7:30 p.m. 2013

Toro Y Moi, the main project of songwriter and producer Chazwick Bundick, was born out of the chillwave movement of 2010-2011, meaning that the sound on albums like 2011’s Underneath the Pine leaned heavily on subdued synth melodies and shifty pitches. As Bundick dismisses the notion that chillwave is a mold into which all of his music fits, his latest release, Anything in Return, strengthens the claim with its distinct house music flavor. On Toro’s (arguably) most danceable record to date, the electronic mishmash of synths and samples on songs like “Say That” sound exactly like something you’d expect to hear while you peruse the clearance rack at Urban Outfitters.
