This is real music
From start to finish this album is a masterpiece. The combination of Chaz and The Mattson 2 makes for one incredible album. It’s funky, jazzy, and psychedelic. The three of them really show off what good, technical musicians they are. Every song is well written, atmospheric, and catchy.
This album is the best, more relaxing album there is! I could listen to this album all the time! Especially on long road trips ! The lack of lyrics really lets you immerse yourself into the music. 11/10! I love it
About Chaz Bundick
Best known by the stage name of Toro y Moi, Chaz Bundick is an American singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist who first attracted national attention in 2010 and is often associated with the rise of the chillwave movement. A native of Columbia, South Carolina, Bundick played in indie rock bands throughout his youth, eventually gaining some recognition for his more electronic sample-based solo work during his college days at the University of South Carolina. He was signed to Carpark Records in 2009 under the name Toro y Moi and released his debut LP, Causers of This, the following year. Over the next few years he would release two more releases as Toro y Moi, building a reputation for his versatile and experimental take on pop, hip-hop, R&B, and electronic music. Bundick made his first diversion from the Toro y Moi banner in 2014, releasing an album called Michael under the name Les Sins; however, he returned to his better-known moniker the following year to release What For? Featuring a more guitar-based rock style, What For? charted at number 123 on the Billboard Top 200 upon its April 2015 release. A collaborative mixtape called Samantha was self-released in August of that year. Live from Trona, a concert album performed to no audience in the middle of the California desert, was released in 2016 and marked Bundick's first collaboration with the identical-twin jazz duo the Mattson 2. The Mattson brothers, Jared and Jonathan, again joined Bundick the following year and the trio released an album of retro-psychedelic music called Chaz Bundick Meets the Mattson 2. ~ Timothy Monger
