TORO Y MOI + VINYL WILLIAMS @ Seoul V-Hall
◢ ◣ TORO Y MOI ◢ ◣
“an imaginatively mournful take on dancepop production” – Drowned in Sound
“earworm pop melodies” - NME
“Spaced-out and sun-kissed, Underneath the Pine seeps a laconic relaxation that’s “warm, wistful and nostalgic without ever coming on too maudlin” -BBC
“an artist with scope, ambition, and a firm grasp of how to balance the two” – Pitchfork, [Best new music 2011]
Toro y Moi is back to Korea with an accomplice! Toro y Moi is the moniker of 24-year-old Columbia, Chazwick Bundick, backed by a full band on tour. Toro Y Moi is constantly evolving. While heavily influenced by his parent’s vinyl and tape collection, the sound stays true to his contemporary influences of Animal Collective, Sonic Youth, J Dilla & Stones Throw hip hop, and Daft Punk, and cumulatively leading the new class of musicians deemed chillwave in genre. Last year’s “Causers of This” as well as the newer “Underneath the Pine” have drawn considerably praise and a ravenous fanbase, in Korea and abroad. His first shows in Korea this June garnered love from hundreds of fan as well as some kind print in NYLON Korea, and the cover of STUDIO 24. His newest EP “Freaking Out‘ just dropped with an 8 on Pitchfork and tons of dislocated shoulders from all the grabbage.
◢ ◣ VINYL WILLIAMS◢ ◣
Vinyl Williams is a lifetime music venture by Lionel Williams. In the past there have been several live members, namely Bryan Lee on drums. The music is an attempt at “sonic matrices” which are combinations of sounds that beneficially affect the body. The process is enabled at frequency intersections, when certain tones, chords, and patterns are composited to induce specific (and usually unpredictable) qualities in the human psyche. On the surface, the music sounds like a whirlpool of psyched-out rock with glowing layers of krautrock, shoegaze, and mysticism. “Spacebeat” / “Shoegroove”.
