“Talamak” (MP3)

    Perhaps Toro y Moi saw how much blog-ink his buddy Washed Out has been getting lately and decided to make sure people didn’t forget about the other exciting, lo-fi pop act out of South Carolina. Toro y Moi’s Chaz Bundick posted “Talamak” on his Myspace page, and the track’s a good reminder of the fact that, while Toro y Moi, Washed Out, and to a lesser extent, Neon Indian, might be doing similar things musically, Toro y Moi’s work is generally more structured, and less covered in reverb and dreamy fuzz. However, that doesn’t change the fact that all three of those acts should probably go on some kind of psychotropic-fueled tour togehter. [Pitchfork]
