Toro Y Moi: "Say That"

Quick, one last chillwave entry before the wheels come off. Can't believe I haven't covered Toro Y Moi previously, but then again I don't tend to cover a lot of the tunes that are already canvassed by literally every other indie blog on the planet.

I'm making an exception for this one because it may, in retrospect, represent the moment where the genre merged into mainstream pop. The production lacks the syrupy filters and atavistic synth lines associated with the style, instead proffering a breezy yet accessible pop sensibility. In other words, we've reached Peak Chillwave. Shit happens.

Anything in Return is out January 22 on Carpark Records.
