The strong "Anything in Return" (Carpark), Mr. Bundick's recently released third full-length album, can't help but feel like a response to the womb he was born of. It's by far the most muscular of his work, even if his version of muscle is a thin sinew, only lightly flexed. Still, it's not chill. Not totally, at least.
His show at Webster Hall on Wednesday night highlighted the difficulties of shaking loose of the calm and moving toward squall.
Even at its most raging, Toro y Moi's music is an insular proposition, which in a room the size of this one, has its limitations.
At times, the mood was shamanistic -- there was smoke in the air, and the light show was throbbingly vivid. When Mr. Bundick went into psychedelic-soul freakout mode, it had moments of transporting power. - [NY Times]
Chillwave survivor Toro Y Moi rolled through NYC this week on his current tour with Wild Belle and Dog Bite, playing Webster Hall on Wednesday (2/13, as reviewed by the Times, above) and Music Hall of Williamsburg last night (2/15). Backed some sleek, '80s-inspired lighting, Chaz and his band tore through a good chunk of his brand new Anything in Return and select cuts from his two previous LPs.

Says the PR
On the heels of a highly successful, critically acclaimed sold-out 2012 festival, the Sasquatch! Music Festival unveils its 2013 lineup, which once again features 4 days of music. The festival, hailed as "a model of well-paced programming...in a four-day schedule as efficient and natural feeling as an expertly built algorithm" by NPR Music while Wired notes, "leave the landscape out of it and Sasquatch! has a lineup to kill for," runs May 24-27 (Memorial Day Weekend) at TheWoot. 2013 Lineup below...

Wild Belle @ Internet Week
I thought it was a little weird that Chicago band Wild Belle was playing a random NYC show, aka the Internet Week party that happened at "IWNY HQ" on Mercer St. Monday night with MNDR, but then I just read this:
EMI Music Publishing has signed a global songwriting deal with hotly tipped American duo Wild Belle.Here are some pictures from their new hometown show. More below...
The agreement, which is effective immediately, was sealed by EMI Music Publishing UK's Guy Moot, president UK and European A&R, and Dan Lloyd-Jones, VP A&R, with EMI Music Publishing North America's Jon Platt, president of North American Creative.
Originally from Chicago and now hailing from Brooklyn, New York, the sibling duo of Natalie Bergman and Elliot Bergman started gathering a fan base after posting their first track to their Bandcamp page, 'Keep You', earlier this year.
Roger Faxon, EMI Group CEO, said: "EMI is the perfect home for Wild Belle and I'm thrilled that Natalie and Elliot have chosen to join us.
Just like in 2010 and 2011, Internet Week NY HQ will be home to stages, a classroom, lounges curated by Design Within Reach, installations from Ivan Toth Depeña in collaboration with Jared Schiffman's "Spatial Media" class at NYU's ITP, and more. With 20,000 more square feet of Digital Playground as well as Conference Theater--Internet Week HQ at 82 Mercer is poised to be the best yet.Internet Week NY 2012 starts today (5/14) and, much like in the years prior, will feature live music performances in addition to the web-focused events.
Open from May 14-17, attendees can expect to be a part of the ever-changing digital landscape in New York--hearing from industry luminaries and innovators across two stages and a classroom on the second floor of 82 Mercer. On the ground floor, Internet Week NY will host large-scale ticketed conferences with partners like App Nation.
A full schedule of all Internet Week goings on is available at their site but the musical portion of the conference kicks off tonight with an invite-only party at IWNY HQ (82 Mercer, 8-11pm) featuring Wild Belle and MNDR before moving to an after-party at Tribeca Grand later on for a performance from Rye Rye with DJ sets from Blaqstarr, Blu Jemz, Night People, and Kaviar Disco Club. Saturday (5/19) will feature a performances from Vacationer, Magic Wands and Body Language (who will also DJ) at Santos Party House.
Passes for the week are still available in varying levels but we're also giving away TWO Insider Passes, which gets you into all of the above and much more. Details on how to win these passes are below.
That kickoff party tonight will be the first NYC performance of Chicago's Wild Belle, who we profiled earlier this year on BV Chicago. The band also recently did their first BBC session last week, which will air in June. Stream their Keep You 12" below.
