Chaz Bundick has cycled through three or four different musical guises since he came to our attention a few years ago, and his latest persona seems to be “happily fuzzed out circa-1994 alt-popper.” The new Toro Y Moi album What For? lands this spring, and first single “Empty Nesters” goes hard on Lemonheads/Weezer vibes. The same can be said of its brand-new video, which would’ve gotten some serious 120 Minutes play once upon a time. In the clip, we see Bundick and his band wasting time on a sunny afternoon, trying their hands at painting, and hanging out with a fun-loving grim reaper. Bundick wrote, directed, and shot the admirably scratchy video himself, and you can watch it below.
What For?” is out 4/7 on Carpark.
