If you remember my Top 50 Albums list from 2010, you'll see Causers of This by Chaz Bundick/Toro y Moi on there at a cool 11th. It's no secret that this guy's probably my favorite chillwave musician.
This album can't really be narrowed down to that alone, though - "Go With You" sounds like bossanova gone summer-pop, "New Beat" is a great dance song, and "Before I'm Done" is a nice guitar-driven song, which is what a lot of Bundick's music sounded like on the June 2009 compilation (specifically, "109", "Dead Pontoon", etc.). Even if you don't like chillwave, you'll find something to like here.
