New Toro Y Moi – “Blessa”

brandon | July 8, 2009 - 5:12 pm

Toro Y Moi is 23-year old Columbia, South Carolina multi-instrumentalist Chaz Bundick (good porn star name). He’s been at Toro y Moi in one form or another since 2001, and recently signed to Carpark, who plan to release two full-lengths in 2010. As a warm up, the label’s putting out a two-song single, each track representing one of the collections (as well as one track can represent many). The gauzy A-Side “Blessa” is perfect for a breezy summer afternoon, some kind of Animal Collective-via-bedroom J Dilla. The B-Side’s called “109,” which might as well stand for degrees. For now, here’s “Blessa.”

You can hear plenty more at MySpace. The “Blessa” b/w “109” 7″ is out 10/6 via Carpark. Long before that, he’s on the road with labelmates Ear Pwr:
