Toro Y Moi’s Chaz Bundick makes pure vibe music—actually, he kind of makes pure vibes, with every song a snapshot of its own moment and its own world. On most recent album Anything In Return, he glides through a post-chillwave—we can say that now, right?—sound where every pixel is in its perfect place, and where the zoned-out digital blur of atmospheric acts like Gas meets radio R&B, dusted-off 8-bit bleeps and his distinct from-a-distance vocals. Some reviewers are saying this stuff is too sweet or too soft or even a little too scared to be something else, but there’s substance back there in the haze, even if its hard to make out at first. Go slow with the lights low and you’ll find it.
