mp3: Harbours – Cashew

Harbours is a dude from Mebourne who makes music.  Judging by his debut “Cashew”, Harbours is a dude who makes really good music.  “Cashew” definitely comes from a Toro y Moi inspired brand of electronic-pop with plenty of bright synths and woozy vocals.  While chillwave has been a blogosphere joke ever since 2009, “Cashew” reminds me of the promise I …

mp3: Shelf Nunny – Wave of Phases (ft. Holm)

In an interview with Chaz Bundick of Toro y Moi, Bundick discusses that he has a distaste for how being able to see the soundcloud waveform can take away from a song.  Specifically, Chaz talks about always wanting to skip to what is clearly the loud exciting part of the song.  If Chaz were to listen to Shelf Nunny’s newest …

mp3: Zouk Fuck – Cheech Chong

When Terence managed to stumble upon the music of Jean Sebastien Audet (seriously how’d you find that? you’re my hero, Terence) I was most intrigued by the lo-fi rap project Zouk Fuck.  Although my first introduction to Zouk Fuck was an incredibly unique and distinctive track, I wasn’t sure how Audet would continue to grow and evolve the project.  Not surprisingly, …

mp3: Toro y Moi – So Many Details

Whether or not you bought into the whole chill-wave craze of 2009, it’s hard for anyone to deny how producer Toro y Moi has been able to keep his sound growing and maturing past blog-fueled buzz terms.  Last year’s Underneath the Pine had Toro y Moi embracing a live instrumentation based disco vibe while his more recent Freaking Out EP found …

mp3: Les Sins – Fetch

Aside from his title as one of the best chill-wavers out there, Chaz Bundick of Toro y Moi is a great dance music producer, something that he showed off pretty well with the instrumentals on Freaking Out.  Les Sins is Chaz’s side project where he experiments with dance music and a song like ‘Fetch’ proves that he’s good enough to …

mp3: Tyler, The Creator & Toro Y Moi – Hey You

The last time we heard the musical stylings of Toro Y Moi and Tyler, The Creator meet was on Toro’s “French” Remix which never really grew on me.  Now the two are back with an original track that has grabbed me right away.  Toro Y Moi provides a high energy beat with synth stabs that reminds me of Stop Making Sense-era talking …
