RIYL: Washed Out, Neon Indian, The Mattson 2
Label: Dead Oceans
Chazwick Bundick’s back. New album Mahal is coming out in April, the 7th full-length from revered shapeshifter and cosmic chameleon Toro Y Moi. Chaz was the first of his ilk to shed the chillwave robes and embark on new interests, from lofi funk to glitzy synth pop to alternative rock. His first 2 singles reveal Chaz further expanding his palette, specifically on Magazine, a jazzy psych trip with break beats from the College of Can. Good stuff.
