ALBUM SPOTLIGHT: TORO Y MOI - WHAT FOR?

The Book of James Murphy 5:9 - I hear that you and your band have sold your guitars and bought turntables. I hear that you and your band have sold your turntables and bought guitars.

Toro Y Moi is out with their fourth album release, What For?, and this release is unlike any of their prior albums. Instead of remaining in their comfortable chillwave niche, Chaz Bundick pushed this album in the direction of an ode to more lucid classic rock. Making the departure from their synthesizer reliant music, Toro Y Moi fills this album with pop-heavy guitar riffs. This, more than anything, has caused this release to be a slightly polarizing one. Give one of the singles, Empty Nesters, a listen though, and form your own opinion!
