Chillwave grandee Toro Y Moi has loosed the first single off his upcoming album in our direction, and we like it. Chaz Bundick – Toro’s earth name – has said that the new album, called ‘Anything in Return’ and out on Carpark in the new year, is him “trying to make sincere pop music that’s not all processed and bubblegum.” We think he’s done a decent job, ‘So Many Details’ is a funkier, more urgent tune than his previous out-of-focus compositions:
Hopefully this reflects a coming together of Toro with Chaz’s other moniker, Les Sins, under which he’s produced some really quite good four-to-the-floor dance music over the past few years. The pick of the bunch being ‘Youth Gone’:
‘So Many Details’ will hit selected stores on November 23rd for Record Store Day‘s Back to Black Friday (GOOD CAUSE ALERT), together with a remix by the man himself featuring Hodgy Beats of Odd Future fame. Worth a punt.
