After a brief foray into House Music via his Les Sins side-project for Caribou’s Jiaolong label, Chaz Bundick is back with a lovely, atmospheric new single off a brand new forthcoming full-length LP coming on Carpark in January.

Titled “So Many Details,” the new single is definitively Toro Y Moi, but with a self-assured edge that finds him unafraid of layering a myriad of disparate sounds that inch it further away from the “chillwave” category he’d been placed in and further into avant-pop R & B.

But, being as he has such a remarkable ear for melody, the track is not so experimental as to lose any of the remarkably sugary sound that has propelled him this far.

This is the sound of an artist diving headlong into the process of becoming. There are many details. And they’re ALL good.

In as many years as his moniker has been extremely bloggable, he’s released as many albums…each increasingly a departure from that initial thing that caught everyone’s attention while being definitively, undeniably “Toro y Moi.” This is a true feat, as even veterans of the industry have real difficulty navigating their artistic development. But, like I said, he’s sharp and the album listening party I went to proves that he’s on the right track, precisely because he’s doing it all just the way he wants. [...]
