Chillwave artists are moving onto all sorts of other projects these days. Some moved onto synthpop, others psychedelia; for Toro y Moi’s Chaz Bundick, the latest endeavor is wine.
All joking aside, it’s been a long time since Toro Y Moi scanned as a chillwave artist. Bundick has explored funk, psych-rock, and ’90s house. But before Toro y Moi became popular, he graduated from the University of Carolina with a degree in graphic design. Those skills came in handy in designing the label for a 2014 Santa Barbara County Rhone Blend as part of Frequency’s new artist series. Check it out:
Frequency describes the wine:
“Syrah sourced from the sandy hillside of Vernas Vineyard blended with 15 percent Grenache from the warm climate of the Santa Ynez Valley, combines savory notes of saline, spicy white pepper and deep blueberry with supple texture and fresh acidity.”
This is the first wine in the Frequency artist series.
Bundick also curated a Spotify playlist of old time soul and R&B as the official companion to downing a bottle. Check it out below:
Toro Y Moi’s latest album, What For?, just dropped April 7 on Carpark Records.
