Toro Y Moi - Anything In Return

For his third album Anything In Return, third-generation chillwaver Chaz Bundick, known to most of us as Toro Y Moi, has left the offbeat murk of his early work behind completely, reinventing himself as a chiffon-smooth soul-pop innovator. (The ridiculously fly videos for “So Many Details” and “Say That” only enhance the impression.) This is the best melancholy disco album I’ve heard in a long time, and now it’s streaming online in full. Listen to it at Pitchfork.

Anything In Return is out 1/22 on Carpark.

  1. I’ve spent a couple weeks with this album at this point, and while there’s some potential golden hits on here for the mainstream and indiesphere alike, I tend to like the much more chilled out songs that are slightly less straightforward and retains some experimental/psychedelic touches. For my money, So Many Details, Studies and High Living are the apex. Cake is comically boy-bandy/dancing-with-a-headset level shiz and a lot of the others are just kind of annoying or more or less decent attempts at pop that aren’t jiving with my aesthetic proclivities atm. A pretty solid effort though all told.
