Since his first offerings began making the Internet rounds in 2009, Toro Y Moi's Chaz Bundick has proven himself to be not just a prolific musician, but a diverse one as well, letting each successive release broaden the scope of the his oeuvre. The funky psych-pop of 2011's 'Underneath the Pine' evinced an artist who could create similar atmospheres even without the aid of source material and drum machines. His 'Freaking Out' EP, a handful of singles and remixes, and a retrospective box-set plot points all along the producer-songwriter spectrum in which he's worked since his debut, and his third full-length, 'Anything In Return,' sees him poised directly in the middle of the two. The product of a move to Berkeley, CA and the subsequent extended separation from loved ones, 'Anything in Return' shows a pervasive sense of peace with Bundick's tendency to dabble in both sides of the modern music-making spectrum, and he sounds comfortable engaging in intuitive pop production, putting forth the impression of unmediated id. Sounding quite assured in what some may call this songwriter's return to producer-hood, 'Anything in Return' is Bundick uninhibited by issues of genre, an album that feels like the artist's essence.
