Toro y Moi 

When: Thu., April 22, 9 p.m. 2010
Price: $5

Often associated with the whole chillwave/glo-fi cluster, Toro y Moi certainly employs the hallmarks of that loose movement—heavily effected, hazily produced tunes with percolating bass grooves, pop hooks and off-balance vocals. But unlike the gobs of '80s nostalgia that line the music of peers like Memory Tapes, Neon Indian and pal Ernest Greene's Washed Out, Toro y Moi—the solo, guitars/ keys/ laptop project of Columbia, S.C.'s Chaz Bundick—puts a contemporary sheen above lush, layered creations, marked both by his ethereal falsetto and dreamy synth. These laid-back head-nodders resonate well with dance-inclined indie kids and hip-hop heads in the know. Kanye even big-upped "Talamak" on his blog last September. —Spencer Griffith
