Toro Y Moi Embarks On A Gigantic Tour
Earlier this month Chazwick Bundick, née Toro Y Moi, dropped a blissfully tripped-out timewarp of a mixtape that we couldn't stop listening to around the office. Having already blown us away in March at the Drunken Unicorn, the mixtape (released on Australian label Modular People) served as something of a history lesson to back up Bundick's refreshingly psyched-out R&B. But if there's one thing we like more than rad mixtapes, it's live music. Lucky for us, Toro is set to tour around the world for the better part of the summer and well into the fall.
