The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

On Friday, an asteroid struck Stereogum's bank of computer servers, or something, and we were out of commission for the day. This was, of course, tragic, since it sent all of you home for the weekend without a single blog post with 20 minutes or so of very good music videos. But if you made… More »

Toro Y Moi – “Say That” Video

Last month, Toro Y Moi gave us the badass HARRYS-directed playboy-style video for "So Many Details," the first single from his new album Anything In Return. And now, for the unbearably smooth soul-disco track "Say That," Toro has once again teamed up with HARRYS. The video mostly consists of Chaz Bundick looking effortlessly cool… More »

2012 In Review: The New Wave Of R&B Comes Into Full Bloom

Throughout the course of my life I have not been what you would call an R&B listener. A brief history of my dabbling: I owned a cassette copy of Boyz II Men's II because who didn't? A year later I nabbed Mariah Carey's Daydream on CD, mesmerized by the tree swing party that was the… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

This is a mournful moment, given the heartbreaking news coming from Connecticut.

We watch videos all week, and then decide which ones we like best, and then we… More »

Toro Y Moi – “So Many Details” Video

Home-studio memory-manipulator Toro Y Moi releases his new album Anything In Return next month, and now the awesomely squirmy plastic-soul first single "So Many Details" gets a video. In the HARRYS-directed clip, Chaz Bundick takes a weekend getaway with a beautiful girl and rocks a seriously impressive series of '70s-movie ensembles, generally looking way… More »

Deconstructing: Memory Tapes And Life Beyond Chillwave

How does the word "chillwave" make you feel in the waning weeks of 2012? If it doesn't make you say "huh?" it probably makes you say "ugh." We all have a different tolerance for contrived trend genres -- for some, the gag reflex is triggered the moment a buzzword is coined; others got so wasted… More »

Toro Y Moi – “So Many Details (Remix)” (Feat. Hodgy Beats)

Odd Future leader Tyler, The Creator has been a vocal fan of Toro Y Moi for as long as he's been in the public eye, and he worked with Toro on the new song "Hey You" a couple of months ago. And now Tyler's Odd Future buddy Hodgy Beats contributes a verse to a… More »

Toro Y Moi – “So Many Details”

Toro Y Moi's got a new LP out at the top of next year, and today he released a gurgling bit of electro-soul called "So Many Details." It's one of the weirdest things he's ever done, and early returns suggest that's a good thing. Hear it below. More »

Les Sins – “Fetch” & “Taken”

Today, Toro Y Moi's Chaz Bundick dropped a couple of new dance/house tracks as alter ego Les Sins, a pair of songs called "Fetch" and "Taken." The first is a twinkling, rumbling slab of house and the latter exhibits a more lighthearted approach. Stream them below. More »

Watch Toro Y Moi Debut “Rose Quartz” At Lolla

Yesterday at Lollapalooza, Toro Y Moi played a few songs. One of them, "Rose Quartz," is a sinuous, slow-building synth-disco jam that continues the smoothed-out career arc that Chaz Bundick has been on since Underneath The Pine. Check out a nice professional video of the band playing the song below. More »

Tyler, The Creator & Toro Y Moi – “Hey You”

Tyler, The Creator shows a lot of love for Toro Y Moi on Twitter, so you had to figure a collaboration between the two was only a matter of time. Apparently, the track, "Hey You," got out there before they were finished, but OF is rolling with it. Via their Tumblr:… More »

Toro Y Moi – “New Beat (Star Slinger Dancehall Remix)”

I’m Corban Goble, the younger of the two new Stereogum staff writers (shout outs Breihan). Previously I was a staff writer for Time Out New York’s music section and I’ve contributed to a bunch of other places and for a while had a pretty decent webzine going. I’m from Kansas, have a… More »

Toro Y Moi – “How I Know” Video

Toro Y Moi's Underneath The Pines track "How I Know" gets a Jordan Kim directed video set in a house haunted by ghost twins who are bent on killing a trio of bumbling dudes, but it's much more goofy Scooby Doo spectral farce than anything inspiring actual fear. Recommended. Watch it, here:… More »

Chaz Bundick recorded his Freaking Out EP last month during a break from touring. Here's one of the post-Underneath The Pine tracks, a cover of Alexander O'Neal & Cherelle's "Saturday Love":… More »

Cut Copy – “Blink And You’ll Miss A Revolution (Toro Y Moi Remix)”

When Cut Copy came to the Williamsburg waterfront last summer, Zonoscope was still largely unheard and the band promised "Blink And You'll Miss A Revolution" would be their next single. Actually it was "Take Me Over," and then it was "Need You Now," but here one year later "Blink" gets it… More »

Download Stereogum’s Cruel Summer 2011 Mix

Here's the sequel to last year's popular heartbreak of a mixtape, Cruel Summer. That one was worn, forlorn, and sexual, it was the soundtrack arc to your winter romance burning up and melting in the hot, hormonal sun. This year it's just a party, really, soundtracked once again by some of the very best… More »

Stereogum’s Top 20 Albums Of 2011 So Far

We still have plenty of time and music left in 2011, but since we're at the halfway (or so) mark, we thought it made sense to pause and take stock of the best albums of the year so far. There was some science behind the final tally: Each one of us made a list and… More »
