Toro Y Moi
Causers of This - Carpark
FILTER Grade: 83%
By Bernardo Rondeau on March 11, 2010
The first of two full-lengths to be released this year by South Carolina’s laptop symphonist Toro Y Moi, Causers of This is a remarkably confident suite of pop gems. Over gelatinous rhythms, washed-out synths and pointillist guitars, Chaz Bundick’s dream-time vocals suggest Panda Bear gone R&B. Closing with a bit of gaudy, high ’80s bubblegum, Causers of This is a bold introduction to a promising newcomer.
