Show Review

There's an inpenetrable aura surrounding Chaz Bundick, aka Toro Y Moi. The tracks on his 2013 full-length, Anything in Return, are bound together by a musical seductiveness, and each corresponding music video added to his enigmatic allure. Witnessing Toro y Moi's live performance at Hype Machine's Hype Hotel gave us, as well as a full-house crowd, an opportunity to embrace our carnal attraction to the dance-worthy tunes.

Tell me you won't ever give up
She owes my love And I've got her now
She's all right, I'm all right We're all right
We can't go back Say that you'll always remind me
'Cause I can't decide if you are my love I know I can always be home
But I never left Don't think like that
Tell me you won't ever give up
She owes my love And I've got her now
She's all right, I'm all right We're all right
We can't go back Say that you'll always remind me
'Cause I can't decide if you are my love I know I can always be home
But I never left Don't think like that
She's all right, I'm all right
We're all right We can't go back
She's all right I'm all right
We're all right We can't go back
Say that you'll always remind me, 'Cause I can't decide if you are my love
I know I can always be home But I never left
Don't think like that
She's all right, I'm all right We're all right
We can't go back.
She's all right, I'm all right
We're all right We can't go back.
Thank you guys so much.
See you next time.
Bye-bye.

Artist Bio

Toro Y Moi is 23 year old Columbia, South Carolina native and resident Chaz Bundick. After earning a BFA in Graphic Design at The University of South Carolina, Chaz decided to push his music further now that he has more time on his hands. His mom came from the Phillipines to the United States, where she met her future husband (who's African American) in college. They lived in New York City taking in all the wonderful cultural influences the city's rising underground scene had to offer at the time (late 70s/early 80s). Deciding to slow down and be closer to family, they moved to Columbia, South Carolina where they had their first child...

Chaz Bundick's methods are constantly changing and evolving. Heavily influenced by his parent's vinyl and tape collection, he also possesses great admiration for contemporary influences like Animal Collective, Sonic Youth, J Dilla, and Daft Punk. Like most prepubescent teens, he had his punk band and once that died out, the "side project" soon became the main focus.

Toro y Moi started in 2001 as a bedroom project but quickly grew into the live performance realm. The songs are born from a plethora of different genres, from freak-folk to R&B to French Housewhich is heavily influential on Chaz's newest dance alias, Les Sins. Before any full length album has been released, Toro Y Moi has already received praise from music websites like Pitchfork and Gorilla Vs. Bear as well as upcoming print features in the NME and Dazed and Confused.
