Toro Y Moi is Totally Enfermo & Other Fun Facts

Not familiar with Toro Y Moi? Let's get the important stuff out of the way first. One. Toro is a Gamecock, ya heard? A GAMECOCK. USC ain't always for SoCal. Where we're from, its the University of South Carolina. If you love wallowing in agony and being so close yet so far away, then fall in love with that team. *Bonus - screaming, "Go Cocks!" with your maw maw at games.

Secondly, Toro Y Moi (aka Chaz Bundick) is a baddass musician/producer who is creeping up through the indie ranks and seems to be making everyone take notice. (Paper mag says he's beautiful - so there.) He's currently touring Europe, but will be doing a few dates in the US in August. CHECK HIS MYSPACE for more info. Oh, and he's on CARPARK RECORDS with other lovely folks like Dan Deacon & Beach House.

That didn't do it enough? Well, dang it. Bundick has a photo blog of his loves, tours, travels and untravels, too. POOR AND LONELY.
