When your given name is Chazwick Bundick, it’s hard to see why you would adopt a stage name. Nevertheless, Bundick chose Toro Y Moi (translation: “Bull and Me”) to present his special blend of sensual ambient jams. The bespectacled 24-year-old’s every move has been chewed up and swallowed by the music-loving public since he backed up a series of promising EPs and demos with his 2010 full-length debut, Causer of This, which married chillwave’s traditional dreaminess with hip hop’s funk/soul collage work. Bundick followed up Causer with 2011’s Underneath the Pine, a slight departure from chillwave with tighter, less-dazed song structures and even some conventional pop choruses.
Touring behind the new album, Bundick is playing Bardot on Thursday — his third Magic City show since 2010 — as part of the Midtown lounge’s stellar Living Room Sessions series. To enter to win two tickets to the show, simply leave a comment on this post. We will announce the winner, chosen at random, on the Beached Miami Facebook page on Wednesday morning. Until then, enjoy “Still Sound” off of Bundick’s latest. (I just wanted to write “Bundick” again.)
