Ernest Greene, the man behind the chillwave name Washed Out, has officially gained notoriety—enough of it to be recognized for more than just his huge hit “Feel It All Around,” which many listeners heard the first time during the opening credits of Portlandia or as a favorite track on a playlist of summer 2010.
Rising star Chaz Bundick, and leader of Toro y Moi, brought his band and electrifying sound to the Great American Music Hall for two nights this past weekend.
Get an early listen to Toro Y Moi’s latest album, Underneath the Pine, a followup to his debut last year that made waves on the blogosphere. The new album, set for release on February 22nd, focuses more on live instrumentation, as opposed to more electronic/programmed approach he took on 2010′s Causers of This. Listen to the free stream HERE. He returns to San Francisco after a run of gigs at SXSW for a show at Great American Music Hall on March 24th.
