Toro Y Moi’s contribution to Secretly Canadian’s Our First 100 Days gets a weird suicide-themed visual. Check it out above.
American organisation Our First 100 Days is — as you probably guessed — releasing 100 songs for each of the aforementioned days that President Donald Trump sits in office, mainly to fight against everything what the man stands for (you can read their full breakdown below). One of those tracks is from Tory y Moi, titled ‘Omaha’, which you can stream via their Bandcamp.
With Trump’s first 100 days in office upon us, action must be taken to protect the causes that will come under threat from this administration.
Our First 100 Days seeks to aid in that protection. Joining together with artists and labels we will be releasing one rare, unreleased or exclusive song per day to you via Bandcamp.
For a minimum contribution of $30, supporters will be able to access all 100 songs in the project, including new music from Angel Olsen, How To Dress Well, Toro Y Moi, The Range and many more.
All profits raised from Our First 100 Days will go directly to organizations working on the front lines of climate, women’s rights, immigration and fairness.
The project was started in conjunction with Secretly Group and 30 Songs, 30 Days, and aims to raise funds and awareness for organizations supporting causes that are under threat by the proposed policies of a Trump administration. This project is produced with the help of Revolutions Per Minute, an organization that provides strategy and support for artists making change.
Chaz Bundick — also known as Toro Y Moi — has been dropping a lot of new music since last year: we’re still rocking out to What For?, Samantha and — more recently — his Live From Trona project (not to mention videos and loose gems here and there). Now, it’s been revealed that Chaz is teaming up with previous collaborators (and twin musicians) Jaren and Jonathan Mattson for a new release titled Chaz Bundick Meets The Mattson 2, which is set to be released 31st March.
Today, we bring to you their new single from said project titled ‘Star Stuff’. Check that out below.
Chaz Bundick — better known by many as Toro Y Moi — has decided to unveil a brand new moniker on the world. As PLUM, the DJ/producer/musician releases a new track titled ‘New Globe’, which certainly sees him at his most spaced-out and ambient. Check out the track’s description (via Leaving Records):
PLUM is a self-titled, single-track 7 minutes and 55 seconds long ambient synthesizer exploration from Chaz Bundick. “New Globe” was created using the Dave Smith and Tom Oberheim OB-6 synthesizer, and perhaps more specifically inspired by the still-contemporary New Age music of legendary composer Laraaji. The project was set into motion by a hunch from Leaving’s Matthewdavid to participate in the Modern New Age series.
Enjoy a stream of ‘New Globe’ below.
What a surprise: this weekend saw the release of a new project from Toro y Moi titled Live From Trona, which followed last year’s Samantha mixtape…the release is a packaged account of a seemingly otherworldly performance that he did while at the Trona Pinnacles in California. In addition (and what we missed), the man also known by his real name — Chaz Bundick — also revealed a visual for one of the tracks, ‘Grown Up Calls’ (which is itself a trailer for the video version of Live From Trona).
You can check out album (via Apple Music) and clip below.
Toro y Moi has apparently decided to end his year by blessing the masses with four unreleased (?) songs that the man himself tagged as rare — ‘Couplegirls’, ‘4- 5-12b’, ‘3 – 4-12b’, and ‘2 – 1-12b’.
According to the short description, all but ‘4- 5-12b’ are variations of ‘Lyin (Pt. 1-4)‘, a track that appeared on a collaborative 7″ that he did with Dog Bite (he was on tour with them at the time)2-3 years ago.
Check out the tunes below.
Toro Y Moi decided to give the fans a three-for-one of sorts in the form of ‘Dada Art’, a visual that features the tracks ‘Boo Boo Mobile’, ‘Ambient Rainbow’ and the Washed Out-assisted ‘Want’. All three tracks are taken from his latest mixtape Samantha.
Toro Y Moi drops a simple-yet-effective new visual for ‘Half Dome’, which is taken from his latest album What For?. The clip is made up of time-lapses shot at Yosemite National Park in California.
If you missed it, you can also enjoy Toro Y Moi’s cover of Elton John’s ‘Rocket Man’ (done with Astronauts Etc.) here.
After dropping a few tracks here and there with a mysterious woman for artwork, Toro Y Moi blesses the masses with a new mixtape titled Samantha, the first follow-up to What For? that features 20 tracks and appearances from Kool A.D., SAFE, Rome Fortune, Washed Out, Nosaj Thing and SHORE. Apparently, the project is filled with music that was created from as far back as January 2012 to now.
Toro y Moi can’t stay in one particular sound for very long before he begins to explore…such is the case with ‘2Late’, a drowsy, almost urban-R&B blend that features assistance from Kool A.D. and SAFE. While we appreciate the warmth of ‘What For?‘, it’s this particular vibe that has us excited for a new project from Chaz Bundick.
