Champion of chillwave, Chaz Bundick (Toro Y Moi), had planned to release two albums during 2010, with one using an electronic sound, and another accompanied by live instrumentation. This year’s Underneath The Pine (Carpark) signifies the latter, ushering Toro Y Moi into a new area of exploration for the new year.



Bundick caught listeners’ attention in the summer of 2009 with his debut album Causers Of This. His newest album showcases influences of film composers Ennio Morricone and François de Roubaix, and creates sounds paying homage to R. Stevie Moore, David Axelrod and Steve Reich, all while maintaining the funk sound of his debut.



Returning to his hometown of Columbia, SC, Bundick has stayed true to his previous tracks created there, while successfully paving the way for the new ideas found on Underneath The Pine.
