Les Sins – “Bother”...

Full disclosure: Les Sins is Toro Y Moi is Chaz Bundick. Les Sins is his four-by-four dance production project. Ya know, because artists need to breathe and manifest ideas outside their prescribed genre. And I’ll assume he’s a little like me; he doesn’t want his dance gravy bleeding into his indie rock steak. Sure steak and gravy sound great together, but some flavors deserve their own palate. Now I’m fucking hungry. “Bother” holds down a head-bobbing, body-moving groove until a stunning hallelujah moment straight out of a sci-fi version of Kanye West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.

Toro Y Moi – “Cola”...

I know distance kills relationships. I tried lying to myself by saying my situation was temporary. I will go back home. I know it’s a lie. I love it here. I don’t really love it here. It’s tough.

I could project strength for only so long. I could mask the hurt with whimsy for so long. I could stretch a lie for only so far. She ended it. No whimpering. The break was resolute and absolute. I haven’t spoken to her since, and it’s a shame. Irreverant unofficial video CLICK HERE for the full list of Valentine’s Day...
