Published Nov 19, 2010Although he was initially pegged as just another chillwaver, Toro y Moi (née Chazwick Bundick) has shown some unexpected stylistic breadth as of late, releasing the garage-y "Leave Everywhere" (see the video below) and unveiling his dancefloor-oriented alter ego, Le Sins. Now, the Columbia,
In an interview with Exclaim! earlier this year, Bundick spoke about the upcoming album, saying, "It's gonna be different from Causers [of This], more lo-fi. The songwriting is more linear, as opposed to having the ability to move samples and parts around."
He added, "I usually like to work on guitar-/piano-based stuff and then MIDI-/electronic-based stuff. I tend to get bored when I work on one thing"
No songs from the album have been released yet, but judging by Bundick's track record, we can expect a very different sound from his chillwave-y Causers of This.
