TORO Y MOI – WHAT FOR?
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.
