RECORD EXCHANGE STAFF PICK: CHRIS ON TORO Y MOI

Our Staff Pick of the Week comes from clerk Christopher Smith, who waxes philosophic on Toro Y Moi‘s Causers of This:

Toro Y Moi is the one man project of Chazwick Bundick. Causers of This is a truly dynamic album, perfect for solitary listening on headphones and even better as background music for a summer party.

It’s clear that Bundick puts as much emphasis on structure and instrumentation as he does production and dialing in the perfect sound for each track.  Everything from a warbling synth line to a skittering drum beat lend to layer upon layer of catchy hooks.

Toro Y Moi’s songs are dreamy and relaxed, but do not induce sleep or static.  The album is meticulously structured to flow from one groove to another. If you want to shift your backyard barbecue to dance party, throw on Causers of This.
