When we talked to Chaz Bear, aka Toro y Moi, in our December 2016 issue, we asked him a lot about his new paintings. He told us at the time, "My music has become a product because it's so popular now. My art, my visual art, is still very personal, just mine, and barely anyone has really seen it. It's still a little naive, like the approach. I like that, but as far as it becoming something for the popular masses to enjoy like my music is, I don't see it there yet. I am trying to work towards that, though. Once you experience what it's like to become successful off your art, you crave other things. What else can I pursue so that I can still find myself and yet still sell myself in a way?"
Well, today we are here to talk about his new LP, Boo Boo, Chaz's fifth album as Toro y Moi, and from the sound of it, is a touch of pop. Enjoy his new video for the track, "Girl Like You," and look for Boo Boo to be out July 7th, 2017 on Carpark Records.
