Toro Y Moi

Anything in Return (Carpark)

Four years on, people have seemingly forgotten the buzz surrounding chillwave, a faux-genre that splices sunshine R&B with dreamy vibes. With Anything in Return, Toro Y Moi (AKA Chaz Bundick) is forcing everyone to remember. A marked improvement from 2011’s somewhat spotty but still pretty great Underneath the Pine, this record signifies Bundick’s undeniable arrival as a musician with substance. Each track here, from the buttery “So Many Details” to the puppy love of “Cake,” continues Toro Y Moi’s summery sound, but the real difference is how beefed up and consistent this album feels. Of course, Anything in Return works as a collection of party bangers, but it’s also a fully realized artistic statement.
