Inspired by cartoon & movie soundtracks, this side project of Toro Y Moi’s Chaz Bundick explores classic dance & pop music traditions.

Touchstones like Timbaland, Mr. Oizo, & Daft Punk, & contemporaries such as Motor City Drum Ensemble offered inspiration, as Catchy, repetitive vocal hooks gel with beats & synth work influenced by house, techno, French electronic & ’90s hip-hop production. The funky ‘Why’ features vocals from Berkeley, Calif. singer-songwriter Nate Salman, ‘Bother’ holds down a head-bobbing, body-moving groove until a stunning hallelujah moment straight out of a sci-fi version of Kanye West’s ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’. While there are no concrete themes associated with the album, Chaz says he can imagine all of these songs playing in the middle of the brilliantly lighted & busy Ginza district in Tokyo.
