EDITORS’ NOTES

Chaz Bundick (a.k.a. Toro y Moi) debuted in 2010 with Causers of This. That album quickly became a poster child for the emerging chillwave genre—seamlessly melding elements of ambient music, electro-pop, and effects-laden glitch-hop. With each successive release, the producer/songwriter has continued showcasing his innate craftiness and penchant for funky, neo-soul rhythms, creating cohesive pastiches that transcend simple classification. For his third full-length, Anything in Return, the Berkeley, Calif., resident delivers our Editors’ Choice: a lush, silky collection infused with anxious house tempos (“Harm in Charge”), hypnotic R&B grooves (“So Many Details”), and indie-rock melodies brushed with pristine, high-register vocals (“Studies”).
