Toro Y Moi - Boo Boo
Toro Y Moi returns with his fifth studio effort. TitledåÊBoo Boo, the follow-up to 2015‰۪såÊWhat's For?, is his most personal album yet. The intimate and revealing nature of the LP‰۪s 12 tracks is the result of a confusing identity crisis, in which the synthpop musician found himself struggling to settle into life as a ‰ÛÏfamous‰ person. ‰ÛÏMy dreams had become my reality, yet I was somehow unable to accept this new environment,‰ Bear explained in a press statement. ‰ÛÏI felt as though I no longer knew what it was that I actually wanted and needed in and out of life, and at times I felt unable to even tell what was real.‰ To help cope, Bear turned to music, and not just his own. He counts material from Daft Punk, Frank Ocean, and Oneohtrix Point Never as major influences on Boo Boo.
