Aboard the (Chill)Wave With Toro Y Moi

When I recently interviewed Chaz Bundick over at the Agit-Reader, I unfairly assumed that his music was constructed with manipulated loops and samples. Little did I know he's an accomplished guitarist and a wizard on the synths. I should have known, in my conscious/subconscious I can't remember something as beautiful as "Blessa" in my youth. He's mainlined all the new romantic I obsess over and managed to filter it through the dreamy world of "chillwave" without succumbing to the flimsiness of some of his "glo-fi" peers. (Neon Indian I'm looking at you). Stop stealing from Sonic the Hedgehog II.
