Everything, everything is made better by inflatable arm flailing tube men. Used car dealerships know this, tacky furniture outlets know this and now, Toro Y Moi knows it.
His new side project Les Sins is a kind of funky, house-inflected production with a sparse, lo-fi visual aesthetic. If there’s one thing Chaz Bundick gets, it’s linking appropriate visuals to a particular kind of sound.
The first single off upcoming album Michael is the anthemic Bother. The accompanying video involving a tube man bumping and grinding to earn that inflatable paper in a variety of locations is great. It even ends with the yellow fella boating off into the sunset.
Michael is out on October 31 through Mistletone/Inertia in Australia and New Zealand.
