Chaz, the only member in bedroom project Toro y Moi, is a friend to Washed Out's Ernest Greene and so, no doubt comparisons to both projects are going to be habitual. Toro y Moi's debut 7 inch works as an advance for his first two proper albums being Blessa part of one and 109 part of the other, or at least this is the information I read on line. Both tracks are pretty different between them. Blessa is much more interesting in my point of view, and also closer to Wash Out and Neon Indian and the under-water lo-fi summer melting sounds production that looks so 2009 and it's pretty interesting and innovative so far. The B side, 109, is closer to most of the tracks I have heard so far by Toro y Moi, closer to lo-fi indie pop but with the same summer feeling. Not sure if the albums are going to be divided stylistically and will follow these two sides of the same project but would be interesting if he does it this way. The single and both albums are going to be released by Carpark Records. Check his blog for more information and to see his photos and art.

Released 05/10/09
