Toro Y Moi – Vans House Parties
Vans House Parties are like unicorns: exciting, rare, and sweaty. At least, I assume unicorns are sweaty, carrying their horns across dimensions like they do. All summer, kids have been throwing down with invariably energetic artists in blazing heat, courtesy of Vans and FYF Fest. The series kicked off on June 27 with Canadian hardcore outfit Fucked Up, and has continued with Shlohmo, Classix, !!! and more.
We’ve been right there with them—this time, our homeboy Tim Harrington of Les Savy Fav took Toro Y Moi’s Chaz Bundick record shopping at the Thing in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, where the two got cozy and talked jazz, inspiration, and finding their own albums in thrift stores. The Vans House Parties continue all summer, as does our coverage, so if you’re nearby come say what’s up!
