whilst most would think there were no genres left for producer/songwriter/singer/melodic mastermind Chaz Bundick to play with, the intrepid musical explorer now throws one hell of a curve ball into the mix.

Never one to stand still & fresh from a scheduled intermission whilst working on a dance record as Les Sins, loaning his vocals to Chromeo & starting his own record label, 'What For?' draws inspiration from Big Star, Talking Heads & Todd Rundgren, as well as the psychedelic soul of Brazil’s Tim Maia & ‘70s-era jazz-funk of France’s Cortex. Unknown Mortal Orchestra guitarist Ruban Neilson appears on the album, as does multi-instrumentalist Julian Lynch. This time, meticulous production of stereo-panned guitars, buzzing synthesizers, funky keys & live drumming have paved the way for the progression of bundick's melodic sensibility& keen ear for arrangements & texture.
