Toro Y Moi
Causers of This
(Carpark)
Releasing: 23 February

Toro Y Moi is Chaz Bundick. He just got signed to Carpark, who will release two of his albums next year, and you can already hear a great deal of material from the first of them below. He gets a lot of Animal Collective comparisons, surely due to all the beeps and bloops and such, but he’s working in a much more conventional songspace, inviting listeners to just sort of chill out.

SONG LIST
01 Blessa
02 Minors
03 Imprint After
04 Lissoms
05 Fax Shadow
06 Thanks Vision
07 Freak Love
08 Talamak
09 You Hid
10 Low Shoulders
11 Causers Of This

That first production, starring Mary Martin and Theodore Bikel, ended up running for 1,443 performances and spawned the massively popular 1965 film and countless movie theatre sing-a-longs since then.

San Francisco’s Girls are blogosphere darlings at this point, clogging the intertubes with video after video of the same old songs, feeding our insatiable appetite for a slurry of content. “Laura” sounds the same as ever: soupy, jangly, delicious. Stay tuned for footage of Girls playing “Laura” in a basement, “Laura” on The Gong Show, “Laura” on the moons of Jupiter…
