Toro Y Moi - June 2099

Good, but for completists.
Toro Y Moi - June 2099
Did you like the fuzzed up, warbly synths on Toro Y Moi’s ‘Underneath The Pine’? Have some more! And then some...

This compilation of early recordings, previously only available as a tour CDR, strips back the gloss of production, leaving ten tracks of lo-fi, angular, weirdly melodic noise pop. On the one hand, it demonstrates Bundick’s clear ability to write oddly catchy pop with primitive gear. On the other, it occasionally sounds like a shopping trolley falling down stairs. Pick of the bunch are ‘Take The L To Leave’ (Boards of Canada doing indie rock!) and the rubber bass of ‘Drive South’. Good, but for completists.
