    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...

Earlier this summer, we caught up with Bundick backstage at the Pitchfork Music Festival—where Odd Future’s Tyler, the Creator jammed to his set backstage—and got him to share some thoughts on his origins, his success, and his inspiration

    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.
