Chaz Budnick of chillwave act Toro y Moi dropped a new record this month under his new (and decidedly dance-driven) moniker Les Sins. To celebrate, our friends at It’s Nice That visited the graphic design grad’s flat to peruse through a few of his favorite visual tomes. Budnick is responsible for much of the artwork that accompanies his music and a look through his diverse collection alludes to some of the inspiration for his distinct style. From ’80s Swiss watch designs to American music poster collections to architecture, Budnick reveals a collection that is as unexpected as it is alluring—much like his new record Michael out now.
