South Carolina's Toro y Moi is the product of 23 year old Chaz Bundick. Dude started making bedroom pop in 2001, which has culminated into a plethora of worthy sounds.
Chad's project recently got signed to DC's Carpark, joining the likes of some local favorites. The video above is for his cover of Beach House's "Master of None", a classic from the duo that just left Carpark to release their next potential opus on Sub Pop.
Before releasing two Toro Y Moi full lengths in 2010, Carpark is dishing out the Blessa seven inch on October 6th. The title track is an instantly catchy bedroom dance haze of a song. This is the kind of stuff that the world wide interweb is infested with these days, but this is that stuff done right. "Blessa" is a well crafted pop song with interesting production that's worthy of spinning on repeat.
"109" is the B-side, drenched in that sunny 60s bliss that works so well under just enough fuzz. This guy has been all over the place, covering Michael Jackson and doing his part to run the full gamut of genres. The two LPs next year should be hotly anticipated.
You can catch Toro y Moi at the G Spot opening for Islands on November 2nd. Islands drop their new LP called Vapours next week. I've got a pair of tickets to give away to this one, so hit up email@example.com if you want them.
