TORO Y MOI – WHAT FOR?

Infusion Magazine - - LOOK AND LISTEN - Elec­tronic // toroy­moi.com

FIND A NICE SUNNY SATUR­DAY AF­TER­NOON. Hit the beach, crack open a cold one, sit back and put What For? on your iPod. That, dear read­ers, is about as good as af­ter­noons get.

On his fourth al­bum, Amer­i­can singer and pro­ducer Chaz Bund­wick has upped the feel- good fac­tor, and cre­ated a sun­dap­pled al­bum that shim­mers in all the right places.

Blend­ing warm elec­tron­ics and a lo- fi indie vibe, it marks an­other mu­si­cal de­par­ture for the eclec­tic mu­si­cian, and one we’re dig­ging. Lead sin­gle ‘ Empty Nesters’ is the ob­vi­ous big track, and a sure fire indie- disco win­ner, but the rest of the gen­tly paced al­bum hums with sum­mery in­tent, with echoes of Tame Im­pala and The Bea­tles shin­ing through. Lovely, lovely stuff.
