A little while back I got an email from a very unlikely source, someone I never thought I’d hear from because it would just be too random, but that’s the fun of having a design blog. It was from a guy named Chaz Bundick, who some of you may know as the musical artist Toro Y Moi. You’ll recognize his music name if you’ve listened to my Mixcasts or follow what I’m listening to on #musicmonday. I’ve been a fan of his for a long time now so I’m pretty stoked to have him participate in the DWP.

Yesterday, Toro Y Moi had his second album released called Causers Of This, and it’s definitely one of my favorites of the year. It’s kind of electronic, kind of J Dilla inspired and all around laid back and a solid album all around. So he decided to send two images for wallpapers, and I think they sum up his style pretty well. They have this washed out kind of ethereal vibe that floats through his music. Plus I think the colors and textures are awesome, I already have the top image set as my iPhone background.

I’ve also included a few MP3s from Causers Of This, Fax Shadow and Thanks Vision, so you can get a taste of what he sounds like. I highly recommend you picking up this album. You can grab it over on Insound or iTunes, whatever you prefer.

This isn’t going to be the last music related wallpaper either, I’m gonna try and branch out and get more of my favorite musicians to do some like Lady Gaga, Bono and Guns and Roses…

    Awesome! I’m seeing him in Brooklyn towards the end of this month. My favorite up and coming band is opening for him. Twin Sister, CHECK THEM OUT. They are an absolutely incredible group of musicians. A few of which just graduated from my college.

    Interesting. It’s like a new take on the diptych, but way cooler.
