The product of a move from South Carolina to Berkeley, CA and the subsequent extended separation from loved ones, Toro Y Moi’s third full-length, Anything in Return, puts Chaz Bundick right in the middle of the producer/songwriter dichotomy that his first two albums established. There’s a pervasive sense of peace with his tendency to dabble in both sides of the modern music-making ... Read more in Amazon's Toro Y Moi Store

Editorial Reviews

Toro Y Moi is the sound the world has been waiting for. This multi-cultural juggernaut gathers up the best musical elements from around the globe R&B, Indie Rock, Electronic Dance and Psychedelica and creates something-freaking-else! Over the course of his first groundbreaking full length "Causers Of This", Toro Y Moi turns the aforementioned musics upside-down with his breathtakingly innovative approach. The incendiary power of Toro Y Moi's funky synth and guitar play, pumping digital rhythms and gorgeously bright vocal harmonies makes for a formidable combination.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soooooo good. December 27, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Although they sound absolutely nothing alike, I'd have to describe this as the best breakup masterpiece since Dinosaur Jr's "Where You Been". I can't stop listening to it. It's been weeks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great music, great album June 2, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD is definitely worth buying. Every song is great. I wish the disc was a little longer (a little over 30 minutes), but I'll take quality of quantity any day. If you're a fan of shoegaze/dream-pop and sampled hip-hop you will enjoy this.

5.0 out of 5 stars pop music-meets-flying lotus November 2, 2010
By fff3k
Format:MP3 Music
okay, something like that. this is my new favorite music, floaty pop music, great sound, great flow.
am tired of all the machine-like rhythms in electronic pop music...well, i love it when it's done right.
put some shoegaze 80's with madlib, a dash of flying lotus...whatever. it just works, and is worth purchasing NOW.

5.0 out of 5 stars for what it's worth November 2, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Good sound here. Mix something like Bel Biv Devo with sample based house music like Daft Punk a bit of easy listening and have Thomas Mars of United era Phoenix do some vocs - now you have something like Toro Y Moi's album Causers of This. It's not the most exciting record in the universe, but it's kinda nice to chill to and just have in the background during lazy sex... or something like that.

My fav song is "You Hid" I think.

Recommended for a chill session. For what it's worth, this would have been the most incredible sheit back in 1999 with all the stupid ravers. Too bad for Toro, I don't think "chillwave" is going to gain much momentum.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic album February 18, 2011
By Alex
Format:MP3 Music
Toro y moi has gotten a good amount of buzz from music blogs, and with good reason. The kind of sound Chaz Bundick has managed to create with this album is really unique. I love the bass-filled beats in these songs, and the manipulation of samples is very psychedelic. I got into this album song by song, and I would recommend "Blessa" and "Low shoulder" as great jumping off points. However, the whole album is very cohesive, and there is some genuine, personal lyrical content here as well. Kind of a dreamy, instrumental mix of Flying Lotus and Panda Bear. This was the soundtrack to my summer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Causers of This
A seminal work of the chillwave genre, definitely deserves to be listened to all the way through. Great Carpark vinyl release also, simple and clean.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I needed...
80's synths, funky basslines, broken hip hop beats a la J Dilla, and effect drenched vocals all wrapped up in indie pop package? It's a brilliant combination. Read more
