Les Sins "Lina"

Apparently, the young chap behind South Carolina's chillwave heavy hitter Toro Y Moi, Chaz Bundick, has another moniker under which he produces tunes, Les Sins. Bundick's alter ego has actually been around for over a year, listening to a whole lot of Daft Punk and getting ready to drop its first 12". That record's title track, "Lina," is a funky dancefloor cut that relies heavily on thinly layered string melodies, flitting guitar plucks, and a smooth, deadpan vocal delivery from an anonymous ladyfriend. The lyrics to the song seem to be a sort of tribute to Bundick's homestate, but the sounds themselves pay homage to the kinds of music that've long been blasting from dark Parisian nightclubs. To say the least, "Lina" is an interesting sidestep for a growing producer who is slowly becoming anything but a one-trick pony. (via Gorilla vs. Bear)
