Toro Y Moi is the musical creation of 23 year old Columbia, South Carolina resident Chaz Bundick.
Carpark will release two very different Toro Y Moi full lengths in 2010. The two songs on this single are representative of those two albums. The single A side “Blessa” could just as easily be called “Blissa”. Melodic ambient samples swirl around Chaz’s cleverly arranged pop song structures. Hazy summer sounds with a New Jack shine, as if Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis produced the Cocteau Twins. The B side “109″ showcases another side of Toro Y Moi. This one is an almost perfectly crafted lo fi pop gem; 60s style pop meets 21st century lo fi. Kinda like Ariel Pink jamming with Motown’s finest.
