Featured Release This Week From Toro Y Moi + Studio One Tracks Top 30 Playlist

Aug 7, 2017

We last heard from Toro Y Moi just a few months ago when he released an album with the Mattson 2 called Star Stuff.  For that project, he used his birth name Chaz Bundick- which he has reportedly now legally changed to Chaz Bear.  The multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, songwriter, producer and graphic designer has other pseudonyms as well, including Les Sins and Sides of Chaz.  He's prolific, creative and increasingly confident in producing his own brand of synth-pop music (labeled "chillwave" earlier in his career.)  Boo Boo is his fifth full-length album as Toro Y Moi.  As the record's promotional materials put it, Toro Y Moi "simultaneously allow(s) a listener to either float away in the ambience, or belt passionately along with his crooner vocals."
