Editorial Reviews

Since his first offerings began making the Internet rounds in 2009, Toro Y Moi s Chaz Bundick has proven himself to be not just a prolific musician, but a diverse one as well, letting each successive release broaden the scope of his oeuvre. The funky psych-pop of 2011 s Underneath the Pine evinced an artist who could create similar atmospheres even without the aid of source material and drum machines. His Freaking Out EP, a handful of singles and remixes, and a retrospective box-set plot points all along the producer-songwriter spectrum in which he s worked since his debut, and his third full-length, Anything In Return, sees him poised directly in the middle of the two.


The product of a move to Berkeley, CA and the subsequent extended separation from loved ones, Anything in Return shows a pervasive sense of peace with Bundick s tendency to dabble in both sides of the modern music making spectrum, and he sounds comfortable engaging in intuitive pop production, putting forth the impression of unmediated id. The producer s hand is prominent not least in the sampled "yeah"s and "uh"s that give the album a hip-hop-indebted confidence and many of the songs feature the 4/4 beats and deftly employed effects usually associated with house music. Tracks like "High Living" and "Day One" show a considerably Californian influence, their languid funk redolent of a decidedly West Coast temperament, and elsewhere not least on lead single, "So Many Details" the record plays with darker atmospheres than we re used to hearing from Toro Y Moi. Sounding quite assured in what some may call this songwriter s return to producer-hood, Anything in Return is Bundick uninhibited by issues of genre, an album that feels like the artist s essence.

I'm gonna keep my review short and simple. I love this album, and I have bought 3 copies of it so far. One for myself and two for friends who have also loved it. I own all of Toro Y Moi's other albums and appreciate them for what they are and consider Anything in Return a worthy addition to his discography. If you are here trying to recapture the magic of Causers of This then you are going to be disappointed because this sounds completely different, but it is a great album nonetheless. I like the music, I like the vocals, I like everything the way it is. Some people are going to love this and others are going to feel disappointed because he is drifting further away from the sound of his debut album. I suggest streaming clips of the album and making a judgement for yourself, but if you just want to take my word on things then I say go for it. You're already here, just buy it...you'll enjoy it.

This was my first Toro Y Moi album, the purchase prompted after hearing two most excellent songs (one of which, "Say That," is on this album) on some compilation discs (one from Mojo Magazine, and the other part of the "Late Night Tales" CD series). Anyway, I was so impressed by those two songs that when I found this CD at a shop in Kuala Lumpur recently I didn't hesitate to take the plunge. About two dozen listens later I'm hooked!

Like many other reviewers, I'm both captivated by this guy's music (and Toro Y Moi is indeed one guy: Chas Bundick), and also unable to categorize it, at least not easily. Toro Y Moi straddles musical borders, hops across them, and integrates a variety of styles into his songs. The closest artist that he compares to, in my opinion, is Todd Rundgren. In fact, if Todd was 30 years younger, he might be making similar music as Toro Y Moi. Both artists are virtually one-man bands, able to produce, write, sing and perform their music in a seemingly effortless fashion ... and turn your head around in process. They both share an uncanny ability to write catchy pop songs with very soulful undercurrents. The biggest difference between the two, aside from the obvious gap in ages, is that some of Rundgren's song veer off into a rockier direction, while Bundick mines a funkier musical vein. But each guy qualifies as a musical wizard who knows how to optimize his use of a recording studio.

As much as I like this Tory Y Moi album, there are a few tracks that don't quite dazzle or sustain interest. But even when it doesn't all click, you have to admire the effort. I think this guy is an incredible talent and capable of delivering a true masterpiece of an album. And that may be coming very, very soon. I'll be eagerly waiting.

Just last weekend I saw Toro Y Moi in concert (more on that later), and ahead of that I had been listening to this album, the 3rd album from Toro Y Moi (the studio one-man band from Chaz Bundick). I became a fan of him with the release of the previous album, 2011's "Underneath the Pine".

"Anything In Return" (13 tracks; 52 min.) starts off with an immediately inviting pick-me-up "Harm In Change" and an equally charming "Say That", both of which signal a continuation towards the more dance-oriented songs found on "Underneath the Pine" and also the "Freaking Out" EP. But then things slow down and Bundick turns more melancholic and reflective on tracks like "So Many Details" and "Cola". In fact, the album stays mostly in that same mid-tempo groove, and somehow it works quite nicely. "Never Matter" towards the end of the album is one last song in which the dance-along factor is increased again. In all, I am enjoying this album quite a bit. Perfect for these summer days!

Last weekend at the FYF in Los Angeles, Toro Y Moi (live a full band, not just Bundick) put on a fantastic 50 min. set before a wildly enthusiastic (and massive) crowd. Bundick & Co. brought a great mix of old and new songs, featuring about 4 or 5 songs from this album (including "Say That", "Rose Quartz", and "Never Matter"). I must say that live these songs sounded more massive than anything you hear on the album, and their set was one of the festival's highlights for me, without a doubt, I enjoyed it a ton! Meanwhile "Anything In Return" is highly recommended!

Toro Y Moi is someone I only just learned about. And until this album the only music I'd digested from him came from the recent EP Freaking Out,which was based heavily in 80's boogie funk. Obviously I don't know this man personally. But there's something in his entire musical approach that speaks of him having a musical history and outlook not exactly unlike my own. Of course my interest in him has no basis in narcissism either. It's always a positive experience to hear someone relatively new the music scene expand upon something that has held a high degree of appeal to the listener. And it's all the better when that particular level of expansion extends on the music the artist themselves have been doing as well.

Right away there are two songs here that leap out of this record for me. "Say That" and "Never Matter" are both built on lively and complex boogie funk/electro style explore the melodic craft of the songs as well as the instrumentation-both of personal stand outs. "Harm In Changing","Rose Quartz","Studies" and even the somewhat more contemporary production of "Cake" all emphasize a number of different types of dance/techno-disco styles hybridizing with a mix of hauntingly chorded keyboard based melodies. "Touch","Cola","High Living","Grown Up Calls" and "How It's Wrong" slow down the pace a bit for what are at their core more probing and harder grooving jazz-funk number.

During the past few years,different kinds of funk grooves played by different people have began to again become ascendant. And even gain a bit more respect. Such ventures are all the more potent when new directions in the music are explored.
