Underneath The Pine was dope, New Beat is probably one of the best songs this year.

I guess he's not getting a lot of love here in NT. I like his music. Always though You Hid had an R&Bish feel to it so I wasn't suprised when he did a cover of Saturday love or MJs Human Nature...I thought both covers were aiight...

He has a new project coming out on the 13th... i haven't been able to find any info on it... i was wondering if it was going to be a cover album, because of the Saturday Love remake...

Nah, surprisingly, he usually does. A lot more than his 'chillwave' contemporaries, at least. We've had a few threads on him recently.

But yeah, "Causers of This" is one of my favorite albums of the last few years. Not a single track worth skipping. I currently have that "Freaking Out" EP in my iTunes. Gonna try listening to it in the next couple days.

[h1]Toro y Moi Talks Success, Isolation & Inspiration[/h1]

At 15 years old, Chaz Bundick began making music in his bedroom. The Columbia, South Carolina native has since risen to become one of indie music’s most original voices, under the name Toro y Moi, having already produced two critically acclaimed full-length albums, Causers of This and Underneath the Pine, and an EP,Freaking Out, which was released on September 13.

Where did the name, Toro y Moi, come from? 
I was on a road trip with my parents when I was 15, and I just made that name up. I wrote it down and started drawing it everywhere, and I stuck with it since I was 15.

During that time you started a so-called “bedroom project,

He was actually performing at webster hall in september i just didnt get a chance to go. Absolutely love both albums and still get HEAVY play. Elise and Blessa are probably my two favorites. Toro always receives good feedback from females in the car.
