So the other day I was reading Essence or Ebony, one of the two magazines, they both start with E and feature black women, so you can see how easy it is to confuse the two. Anyways, both had this section on hot music in 2011 and I read a small section featuring this interesting looking man named Toro Y Moi. He’s interesting looking, not really sexy in my eyes or cute, but to some he may be.
His real name is Chazwick Bundick and he is Filipino and African-American. His music is part of the chillwave movement, a genre that is reminiscent of new wave, pop, and psychedelic music. His first album Causers of This came out in January 2010 and his second album Underneath the Pine came out in February of this year. The music is mainly chillwave with an infusion of electronic synths and loops that can be widely associated with the new wave genre.
His music is pretty soothing, even though most of the words can get lost in between the synths, but it’s great music to listen to on a relaxing day. I’ve checked out his songs, but so far I really like “Talamak”. Check out his song and judge it for yourself. It’s pretty cool finding new artists and discovering different genres. Toro Y Moi seems like a cool person (possibly a hipster) and his music is good in a strange way. See for yourself
