Toro y Moi

Boo Boo


If there was one word to describe Toro y Moi’s fifth album Boo Boo it would, unequivocally, be ‘crisis’. Crisis of identity, time and of coherency.

Maintaining a steady stream of consistency is a recurring issue in Chaz Bear’s music – it always has been. It is apt then that on a song entitled Don’t Try, Bear echoes “Give me no ideas, I just waste them.”

There are few redeeming elements across the twelve tracks, it would seem that more than one boo boo was made during the recording of this record.
