Toro Y Moi is probably the most successful artist as far as leaving behind the pigeonhole of chillwave and continuing to make music on his own terms. For his latest album What For? Chaz Bundick has released the power pop anthem “Empty Nesters” and the retro funk jam “Buffalo.” His latest, “Run Baby Run” splits the difference between those two, with a wind of warm ’60s nostalgia blowing through some serious grooves. Sadly, this is not a Sheryl Crow cover, but it certainly holds its own. Based off these three songs, What For? is starting to sound like Bundick’s most purposeful release yet. Listen below.
What For? is out 4/7 on Carpark.
