yeahDef presents: Toro Y Moi

26 Jan

Cheers to the first installment of YeahDef, a new outlet for artist interviews and casual video adventures through the nyc music scene. Here we have footage from Toro Y moi’s set at Brooklyn Bowl from December 2009 (the video has literally been uploading to vimeo since the day after the show). Chaz Bundick’s chillwave glo-gaze shoe-house experiment is, in the humble opinion of YeahD, one of the most original and largely overlooked of this new “genre.” Check out some live clips from his set and listen to Chaz talk about South Carolina, his friendship with Ernest Greene of Washed Out , and all-yall fuggin hipsters!

If you missed DP’s original post on toro y moi, check it out here. Also, be on the look out for Chaz’s full-length “Causers of This,” which officially debuts 2 Feb.
