Anything in Return

Though lumped in with the woozy-pop “chillwave” trendlet, Chaz Bundick has always had more cooking: Latin disco, soul jazz, bubblegum hooks and Princely funk shining amid glitchy synth washes and Animal Collective freak grooves. His latest is almost a straight R&B/dance set. But romantic certainty is in short supply. “Do you think we did it right?” he asks on “Cola,” a smeary, psychedelic slow jam. The shaky emotions are mirrored in wobbly beats and odd breaks, which seem intent on decentering the whole enterprise. But, hey, love is often risky business.
