Oyster Playlist: Toro Y Moi
Tim and Eric, Jay-Z, Beyoncé, The Dream and more.
We first interviewed Chaz Bundick aka Toro Y Moi back in the beginning of 2011 when he was getting ready to drop his second album Underneath the Pine. A pioneer of chillwave, Chaz described his music back then simply as pop music. Now he's getting ready to introduce his latest synth musings with the release of a new album, Anything in Return, which will be out on 18 January. The first single, 'So Many Details' (featuring Odd Future’s Hodgy Beats), was released this week:
To coincide with the new album, Toro Y Moi is touring Australia in March. He'll play Golden Plains, as well as shows in Sydney and Melbourne (details below). Before his arrival, Chaz put together this fun little YouTube playlist for us! Over to you, Chaz...
1. 'This Feels Like Love' — Lexy and Stephanie
Great song, so catchy. Makes me want to make a video like this.
2. 'Junior Christian Teaching Bible Lesson Program' — Tim and Eric
I hear the sound of a VACUUM CLEANER.
3. Beyoncé gives her microphone to a fan
4. Jay-Z and Timbaland in the studio
5. The Dream making a beat in the studio
6. Frippertronics from Robert Fripp
This is what I watch for inspiration.
