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:

    As someone who grew up in Columbia and has since left, it thrills me to hear this kind of music coming out of my hometown. Totally unexpected. Keep up the good sounds, Chaz!
