Having first gained blogosphere prominence as part of the chillwave craze of 2010, Chaz Bundick has spent the years since guiding his musical project Toro Y Moi away from that genre's sonic signifiers of lo-fidelity, murky synthesizers, and distorted faraway vocals. His latest album, Anything in Return, is a sleek and sexy slab of futuristic R&B that sparkles and thumps in equal measure. Bundick is growing into a confident and commanding singer, with his voice pushed to the fore more than ever before on jittery yet anthemic disco-pop nuggets like "Harm in Change." Thankfully past eccentric tendencies aren't entirely buffed away, as space-age slow jams like the woozy "So Many Details" make abundantly clear. With Sinkane, Dog Bite. 18+.
